NEW Love Island contestant Scott van der Sluis helped Shelbourne defeat Bonagee United in Letterkenny last year.
In August last year, Bonagee United were knocked out of the FAI Cup Second Round following a 4-0 defeat to Premier Division side Shelbourne at Dry Arch Park.
The game was the keeper’s debut for Shelbourne.
He manned the post and kept a clean sheet, but he has now swapped the pitch for the Love Island Villa.
He entered the villa last night as a ‘bombshell.’
A spokesperson for Shelbourne Football Club said, “The goalkeeper requested and was granted a release from his contract so he can take a break from his professional football career to participate in the ITV television show Love Island.”
“The 22-year-old signed for the Reds in the summer of 2022, he made his debut in the FAI Cup Round of 16 clash away to Bonagee United where he kept a clean sheet in a comfortable 4-0 victory.”
