JOHNNY DUNLEAVY HAS penned a new two-year deal with Cork City.
The Ballybofey native captain Cork to the FAI Cup final earlier this month, where they were beaten 1-0 by Dundalk after extra-time at the Aviva Stadium.
The 24-year-old, who is the club captain, is already looking forward to 2016 and beyond with the Leeside club, having missed out on parts of the season just finished with a knee cartilage injury and then a broken cheekbone.
“Last season was a bit up and down for me with injuries, but I tended to get back in time for some of the big games which I was happy with,” Dunleavy told Cork City FC’s official website.
“Playing in Europe was an amazing experience and something that we all worked very hard for, so we can’t wait to get back there next year. We were very close to silverware this season, so we will be aiming for that next year and I have no doubt that we will be pushing at all levels again.”
“I think things are shaping up well for next year. I think we are going to have a strong squad and bringing in fellas with the pedigree of Greg Bolger and Kenny Browne shows where we are going. I have no doubt that John has a few tricks up his sleeve yet and we will be challenging on all fronts.
“A club this size has to be challenging for every competition that you enter and we will be going into every competition next season looking to win it, and hopefully we can pick up some silverware.”Tags:
