Cobh Ramblers FC are pleased to confirm that striker Darragh Crowley has joined the club on loan from Cork City FC for the remainder of the 2020 League of Ireland season.
The 20 year old featured 15 times for the Leesiders in 2019, making his debut against Ramblers in the Munster Senior Cup quarter final, in which he scored. He featured in their Europa League campaign last season and was heavily involved in the senior squad following the arrival of manager Neale Fenn. A graduate of their underage academy, Darragh is a native of Innishannon and previously played with Innishvilla at schoolboys level.
Darragh follows in the footsteps of Pierce Phillips, John Kavanagh, Craig Donnelan and Connor Ellis who all had impressive loan spells at Ramblers from Cork in recent years. He will go straight into manager Stuart Ashton’s squad for tonight’s trip to Bray Wanderers.
He had this to day about the move,
“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. 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.”
