Cork City FC have confirmed that Dylan McGlade and Kevin O’Connor have signed for the 2022 season.
McGlade is going into his third season with the club, and he told CorkCityFC.ie that promotion is the target for 2002: “I’m just really happy to get it done. I wanted to stay and push on again next year. Last year didn’t really go as we would have liked, but I think we will be much, much stronger next year. We all want to push on and get this club back to where it needs to be. I definitely want to score a few more goals next season. I usually try to hit double figures, and that will be my aim for next year. I just want to help the team climb the table and get promoted.”
O’Connor returns to the club having played virtually every game for Shelbourne as they lifted the First Division title, and he says he wants more of the same on Leeside this season. The Wexford native said: “I am delighted to have signed back. I have been chatting to Colin for a while now and he was a major factor in me coming back. Shelbourne had a good side last year that I was part of, and I want more of that next year. Colin is obviously bringing in some experienced players to go along with the talented young players already at the club, so we will be pushing for promotion.”
