Cork City FC are pleased to announce that Jimmy Corcoran has signed back with the club for the 2023 season.
The 20-year-old goalkeeper kept clean sheets in three of the four league appearances he made for City last season, and he told CorkCityFC.ie that he was pleased to be back on board for the coming season: “I really enjoyed my first season at Cork City, and it was obviously a very memorable end to the season. When I first joined last year, I spoke about the atmosphere at Turner’s Cross, but last season it just went up another level again.”
“It is great for this club to be back in the Premier Division, which is where Cork City should be. I know we are all really looking forward to that opening game of the season at Turner’s Cross, and I am sure there will be a big crowd there to back us. Firstly though, we need to get back on the pitch in pre-season, so that is where our focus is now.”
Commenting on the news, Cork City manager Colin Healy said: “Jimmy found his opportunities last season limited, with David Harrington having a very good season, but he did very well when he came in. It can be difficult for a goalkeeper to come in when they haven’t been playing regularly, and Jimmy came in to two of our biggest games of the season and he did well in both. I am very pleased that he has signed back for the coming season, and we look forward to working with him again.”
