Italian striker Tony Izzi has returned to the eircom League - this time in the colours of First Division strugglers Athlone Town.

Izzi, whose career in the League saw him enjoy spells at Shelbourne, Limerick, Cobh Ramblers and Dundalk, has signed for Liam Buckley's side on an amateur contract.

He scored on his debut for Town's high-flying under-21 side in the 2-1 win over Monaghan United and he could turn out to be an important signing by Buckley.

Izzi, whose mother lives in Kildare, is a proven goalscorer in the League. He scored eight goals for Dundalk in the 1999/2000 season, despite making a limited number of starts, and he won the golden boot award while at Cobh.
