Cork City FC is delighted to confirm that Kevin O’Connor has returned to the club until the end of the season.
Speaking in Bishopstown this afternoon, O’Connor said: “I’m delighted to be back. Cork is a second home to me, and it’s good to see a few old faces here. There are obviously only 13 games left so it’s going to be tough, it’s going to be a battle, but it’s the same for everybody in the league. We have to take it game by game and we need to try and maximise the amount of points we can take, so we want to hit the ground running.”
City boss Neale Fenn was pleased at the defender’s arrival, highlighting the experience that the 25 year old will bring to his young team: “I spoke shortly after the break about the need to bring some experience into the squad, and certainly Kevin O’Connor brings us that. He knows the club well and he knows the league well, which was important to me. We needed that experience in such a young group, so I’m delighted that he agreed to come here. He’ll bring some experience and knowledge to our younger players.
Fenn noted that his transfer business isn’t finished yet, as he’s hopeful of making a few more additions before the return to league action on 2 August: “We have a couple of targets that we’re working on from outside the league, so hopefully we’ll be able to pull those off and add a little more quality to our squad.”
