Maher, who decided to not re-sign with St Patrick's Athletic prior to the 2021 season getting underway and instead signed for Wanderers, after having a successful loan-spell at the Carlisle Grounds in 2020 and he feels that decision has paid off and played a part in his move to the Brandywell men.
“Yes, it’s a step up which is something I wanted to do. It’s a massive club so it was nearly a no brainer for me," stated Maher.
“I think, especially as a goalkeeper, it’s really important to be playing. It’s where you learn the most and where you improve the most.
“That’s why I took that decision to go and play for Bray. I backed myself to go and play and now I’m seeing the benefits of it with Ireland and now this move to Derry.”
