We are delighted to confirm that midfielder Pierce Phillips has signed for Cobh Ramblers for the 2020 League of Ireland season.
Pierce began his playing career with Rockmount before spending three seasons with Cork City U19s from 2015 to 2017. He then progressed to their senior setup and spent the first half of 2018 on loan with Ramblers, where he would make 19 appearances before going back to City. He remained there for 2019, making 7 first team appearances before leaving the club at the end of the season. He has been capped for Ireland at Colleges & Universities Level and was a key figure in Cork’s UEFA Youth Champions League Squad.
The 21 year old UCC student becomes the club’s first new signing for 2020, following a number of re-signings in recent weeks. Pierce had this to say about the news,
“I’m delighted to have signed and to get the deal done. I know a few of the lads from my time here two seasons ago and there’s a good squad here so I’m looking forward to getting the season started. We want to push on from and hopefully we can make the year a successful one.”
