Sean Maguire signed for PNE in the summer of 2017 from Cork City in Ireland after a compensation package was agreed between the two clubs.

The striker agreed a three-year deal at Deepdale but initially remained at Cork for two more months as the English league season had finished and Cork were leading the title race.

Maguire initially started out at Waterford United scoring 14 goals in 34 games before moving to West Ham United. A couple of loan spells followed with Sligo Rovers and Accrington Stanley before a permanent move to Dundalk.

Cork were his next team and where he really found his form. 36 goals in 48 games then followed by the time PNE snapped him up. He finished top scorer in the division with 18 goals in his first season at Cork City and was a part of the Cork City Europa League qualifying campaign in his second.

Sean has also played 12 times for the Republic of Ireland U21 side scoring on three occasions.

Maguire arrived knowing some former teammates would welcome him as both Daryl Horgan and Andy Boyle played alongside him as they won the league with Dundalk, he’d also previously played with Alan Browne internationally.
