Steven Beattie returns to Cork City

Steven Beattie says he was delighted to rejoin Cork City.

The Rebel Army announced yesterday that Beattie, who won a league title and two FAI cups in his first stint in charge, would return for the 2021 season.

The 32 year old spent the last two seasons with the Chattanooga Red Wolves in the United States.

And told he's thrilled to be back.

“I am just delighted to be back. It is obviously very different from 2016/17/18, but it is a new challenge and I am home.

"I always wanted to come back at some stage, now I am here and I want to enjoy my football again.

"I know Colin very well from playing with him in 2015; a great man, a brilliant coach and he did a fantastic job at the academy.

"I just want to get started now and try to get the club back to where it belongs.”
