Scott van-der-Sluis has stunned his teammates, fans, and coaches after he confirmed his decision to down his football gloves in a somewhat bizzare career change-up.

“I’ve loved my time at Shels. Football is all I’ve ever done, all I’ve ever known. So this is a new and exciting opportunity for a change-up in life,” he said.

“Shels are a great club going in the right direction and I look forward to seeing what the lads can achieve.

“Shels is my club. I’ll be cheering on the lads as a fan when I leave the villa.”

Reacting to Scott’s decision, Shelbourne manager, Darmien Duff, said the decision by Scott was shocking.

“I was shocked and saddened that Scott chose a villa in Mallorca full of beautiful, single women over myself, the staff and the players,” joked Shelbourne manager Damien Duff.

“I thank Scott for his services to Shelbourne FC and we all wish him the very best for the future, whatever that holds.”
