Cork City FC are delighted to announce the signing of Jimmy Corcoran.
The goalkeeper has been capped up to Under 19 level by the Republic of Ireland, and counts Dundalk, Wexford and Preston North End among his former clubs.
Speaking to CorkCityFC.ie, the 19-year-old said: “Cork City is one of the biggest clubs in the country and always has been, so I am really excited to be coming down and joining the club. I know Colin very well from the international set-up and I am really excited to get going.”
“When I got the phone call to come down, I thought it was a great opportunity and one I wanted to grab with both hands, a no-brainer to be honest. Even from playing in Turner’s Cross earlier this year, the atmosphere was unbelievable and I can’t wait to get going and play in front of the fans.”
“I think Colin has the team going in the right direction and I think that is only going to get better next year. Things are looking up and I definitely expect us to push on next year.”
City boss Colin Healy welcomed the news, saying: “We have signed a very good goalkeeper in Jimmy. He has been an underage international and he has played a good number of senior games for his age, so he has a bit of experience as well. He will add more quality and more competition in that area of the pitch, so it is another good signing for us.
