Cork City FC are delighted to announce that Ruairi Keating has signed a new contract with the club for the 2023 season.
The striker scored 13 times in 28 league appearances for City, firing them to the First Division title, and he told CorkCityFC.ie that he was very pleased to be extending his stay on Leeside: “I have really enjoyed my time at Cork City, so I am delighted to be signing back again for another season. Last season was a really enjoyable one, both for myself personally and for the team, and I am hoping that more good times lie ahead for us.”
“Turner’s Cross was a fantastic place to play last season; the crowds were fantastic and the support we got was amazing, both home and away. There is a really good vibe around the club at the moment and we are all really looking forward to next season.”
City boss Colin Healy welcomed the news, saying: “Keats was a very important player for us last season, so we are very pleased to have him back again. He added a real goal threat to us when he came in, as well as a lot of experience. He’s played in the Premier Division before, and I know he is relishing the chance to do so again.”
