Cork City FC are delighted to announce that Cian Bargary has signed a new contract at the club ahead of the 2020 season.
The 19-year-old, who joined the club at Under 17 level, becomes the latest player to sign a new deal ahead of the upcoming season.
The attacker notched his first goal for the first team against UCD in May, before being sidelined for the rest of the season through injury: “I got a bad injury last year and it was hard to take. I thought I was doing very well for the Under 19s, and I got the goal with the first team, but then I got injured and I’ve been out since then. It’s been tough but I’m working hard to get back.
City boss Neale Fenn was pleased to secure the services of the Tipperary native, saying “He’s a young lad with lots of potential. He’s been at the club for a couple of years now. He suffered a serious injury at the middle of last season so I didn’t really see much of him, but hopefully this season he can get himself fit & right and he’ll play a big part for us.”
“He’s very quick, that’s one of his biggest strengths, and he’s direct. Those types of players are very helpful to any manager at any club. We look forward to seeing him in full flow.”
In other squad news, Fenn also confirmed that Gearóid Morrissey will remain at the club for the 2020 season, while defender Dan Casey has left the club. “It’s brilliant that Gearóid is staying; he is one of the experienced players here and, with the quality he has, he will be a big help for the younger players.”
“I’ve spoken to Dan and he has decided to move back to Dublin. On behalf of everyone at the club, I would like to thank him for his time here and wish him the best of luck for the future.”
