Cobh Ramblers have announced that Ben O’Riordan, the club’s longest serving player, has signed a new deal for the 2021 League of Ireland season.

The 23 year old first joined Ramblers’ U19 set-up in 2015 from Leeside AFC and made his senior debut in a 2016 FAI Cup win over Cherry Orchard. The Ramblers reached the quarter finals of that season’s competition and the play-off semi finals. 

He has made a remarkable 111 first team appearances for the East Cork club. O’Riordan was also a key player in the Cobh team which reached the final of the 2018 EA Sports Cup, the club’s first national cup final. 

The defender was also a part of the Cobh team which beat Rockmount 2-1 in the 2016 Munster Senior Cup final. 

O’Riordan featured 13 times in the disrupted 2020 season, with injury impacting his involvement towards the end of the year.

He joins Charlie Lyons, Ian Turner, Pierce Phillips, Sean Barron, Lee Devitt, Naythan Coleman, Darryl Walsh, Stephen O’Leary, Conor Drinan and Martin Coughlan in re-signing for next season.
