Cobh Ramblers sign Crowley on loan from Cork City

Fri, Jul 31 2020

Cobh Ramblers have signed Darragh Crowley on loan from Cork City for the remainder of the 2020 League of Ireland season.

The striker made his first team debut for The Rebels last year and went on to feature several times for the club.

Crowley even scored his first senior goal against his new club when the sides met in the EA Sports Cup second round last April.

He was also on the bench when Cork City faced Progres Niederkorn in the Europa League last season.

“I feel that at my age the most important thing in my career is to be getting game time in first team football and that was just not possible for me at Cork City this season,” Crowley said, speaking to the club’s website.

“When the chance came to come down to Cobh and play senior football I was delighted to take it and I’m really looking forward to it.

“I knew a few of the lads from their time at City, Pierce and John Kavanagh, and I played with Charlie Lyons as schoolboys with Innishvilla so I’d be good friends with him which helps.

“I feel that the group of players here is very strong and together we can push up the table. Everyone’s goal is to gain promotion and push the club on to the next step, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

Stuart Ashton’s side restart their First Division campaign when they travel to the Carlisle Grounds to face Bray Wanderers on Friday night (kick-off 7.45pm).
