Cork City FC are delighted to announce the signing of Jack Doherty.
The 29-year-old attacker joins the club after scoring 18 league goals for Cobh Ramblers last season, and he told CorkCityFC.ie that he was delighted to have signed: “It’s been a long time coming, to be honest. It’s a pleasure to be here and I am really looking forward to playing in front of the Cork City fans.”
“I’ve been chatting to Tim about his plans for the coming season. It’s a big club; this club shouldn’t really be in this division, but we are here and we need to take that and try to win the league and get promoted.”
“It’s always nice to score goals; I hope to add more goals this season to what I did last season. I like to create things, to get on the ball and, if I am not scoring, I want to be supplying goals for other players.”
City boss Tim Clancy was delighted to announce his first signing, commenting: “Jack is an exciting attacking player who is capable of getting plenty of goals. I think the fans are really going to enjoy watching him, and he is the type of character we want in the club as well. From speaking to him, I know he can’t wait to get started and we are all looking forward to seeing him in action.”
“As I mentioned last week, we have been speaking to a lot of players and working to get deals over the line. Jack is the first one we have announced, and we will be announcing more players in the coming days, as the squad comes together.
