Cork City FC are pleased to announce that Cian Bargary has signed a new contract with the club for the 2023 season.
The 22-year-old played in 28 of City’s 32 league games last season, as they claimed the First Division title. Bargary scored four times for City last season, including a cracking strike away to Longford Town in June, and he told CorkCityFC.ie that he was looking forward to another season in City colours: “I really enjoyed last season. A lot of hard work went in from everyone in the group to get the club back to where it should be, and we were delighted to win promotion back to the Premier Division.”
“It was a very memorable season for all of us, especially those of us who had come through the academy together and to win the league at Turner’s Cross in front a huge crowd was a really special moment. The crowds we were getting show how big this club is and the fans were unbelievable last season. We can’t wait to play in front of them again next season, and I am sure the place will be packed for the opening game of the season.”
City boss Colin Healy welcomed the news, saying: “Cian was a regular in the team and he was an important player for us last season. He’s versatile, he’s hard-working and he has an eye for a goal as well, so we know what he brings to the group. He’s another player that has come through the academy and gone on to play regularly for the first team, which is something we really like to see.”
