Cork City FC are delighted to announce the signing of Ben Worman, pending international clearance.
The 21-year-old midfielder made his first team debut for Cambridge United at the age of 16, and made over 20 first team appearances for the League One side last season.
The midfielder will train with his new team mates at Bishopstown for the first time this morning, and speaking to CorkCityFC.ie, Worman said: “I’m really looking forward to the opportunity. I am at the stage of my career where I want to play as many games as I can, so hopefully I can do that here and show everyone what I am about.”
“We want to get out of the position we are in the league, that’s massive for the club. Giving 100% is the minimum requirement for each game and that is what I will be looking to do, to give my all. The fans can expect that from me, at a minimum, and I will also be looking to try and create and score a few goals along with that as well.”
“I have heard good things about the club and good things about the league. Quite a few players have gone over to Ireland and it has been a good opportunity for them, so I was excited when the chance arose and I am looking forward to it.”
City’s Sporting Director, Liam Buckley, welcomed the latest addition to the squad, saying: “We are very pleased to get Ben in. He’s a good addition to the group, he has quality and he has League One experience as well. He can score and create goals, or he can also play deeper, so he will give us good options in the middle of the park.”
Buckley also confirmed that Daniel Krezic has left the club to return to Sweden, saying: “Daniel has returned to Sweden. We thank him for his time with the club and wish him the best of luck for the future.”
