Cork City FC are delighted to announce that Barry Coffey has signed with the club until the end of the season, following the conclusion of his loan spell.
The midfielder has scored six league goals this season for Colin Healy’s side and, speaking to CorkCityFC.ie, the 21-year-old said:
“I am delighted to be back. I obviously came in last summer on loan and I really enjoyed my time here. We have been building over the time that I have been here and I want to finish what we started. I want to try and chip in with goals and assists between now and the end of the season, and show people what I can do.”
“We have a big second half of the season ahead of us and I really want do well for the team and the supporters. We have put a lot of work in over the year that I have been here, so we want to continue that and finish the job we started.”
Cork City manager Colin Healy welcomed the news, saying: “It is great to have Barry on board for the rest of the season. He has had two loan spells with us now, and I think everyone has seen what he can bring to the side. He has a real eye for goal, and he is a great lad around the club also.”
“We have a very strong core of players at the club who have come through our academy and know what it means to play for this club. While Barry didn’t come through that pathway, I think he really took to the club and the fans and he was really keen to sign back and play his part. He knows the players, he knows the staff and the club, so we don’t need to worry about him taking time to settle in, he will be able to hit the ground running.”
