Ally Gilchrist signs for City!

Cork City FC are delighted to announce the signing of Ally Gilchrist.

The Scottish defender joins having most recently played for Shelbourne, and he told “I am absolutely delighted to get it over the line. Once I knew the club were interested in me, things moved pretty quickly and I am very pleased to be here. It’s a huge club, you can see the crowds that have been coming in over the last few months of the season and I am looking forward to the challenge.”

“The fans have been through a lot over the last few years and stuck with the club through thick and thin, as have a lot of the players. It is a good, young group and you can see that they are making progress.”

“Colin sold the club to me pretty quickly; it is a huge club, there are a lot of good players here and, hopefully, we can push it on next season. It is a great place to play, a great atmosphere and hopefully we can get the place rocking next year. I have come here to win and hopefully we will do that.”

Commenting on the signing, City manager Colin Healy said: “Ally is a very, very good player who will add strength to our defence. Looking at this year, we did have a lot of younger lads in the squad, so he will bring experience and add to what we have.”

“He has experience of a promotion challenge this season just gone and that is obviously the aim for us for next season, so he will bring that experience to the group. There will be a number of clubs targeting promotion next season, so it will be difficult, but bringing in players of the quality of Ally will certainly strengthen us.”
