Cork City FC are delighted to announce that Aaron Bolger has signed a new contract with the club.
The 22-year-old midfielder was a key player for City last season, featuring in 31 out of the club’s 32 league fixtures, as City claimed the First Division title. Speaking to CorkCityFC.ie, Bolger said he was pleased to have signed back: “I’m very pleased to have signed back again for 2023. I have really enjoyed my time at Cork City so far, and these are exciting times for the club, so I am looking forward to being part of that.”
Bolger netted twice in the league last season, with his last gasp winner away to Athlone Town among the nominees for the First Division goal of the season, and he said he was pleased to have been part of the squad which won promotion back to the Premier Division: “It was a fantastic season for us, and to go up as champions was brilliant. When I came in first we were playing in front of limited attendances, but since the crowds came back in it has been fantastic to play in front of them. They have been behind us all the way, and I am sure they will be out in their numbers again next season.”
City boss Colin Healy welcomed the news, saying: “Having worked with Aaron in the Ireland Under 19s, I knew we were getting a good player when we brought him in. He has been a very important player for us since he signed; he’s getting better and better and we have big hopes for him. He is a really good professional, he trains really well and I am looking forward to seeing how he gets on in in the Premier Division. He has the ability to do very well, and I think he can have a big season ahead. I know the supporters can see how important he is to the team. We are delighted to have him back, and I am looking forward to working with him again in 2023.”
