Cobh Ramblers FC are pleased to announce the club’s first re-signing for the 2020 League of Ireland campaign. Defender Charlie Lyons has become the first confirmed member of Stuart Ashton’s squad for the new First Division season.
Charlie joined the club from Preston North End in 2019, making his debut in the Munster Senior Cup tie with Cork City. The 19 year old went on to become a firm fixture in the squad, making 25 senior appearances. He previously played for Innishvilla at schoolboys level, prior to joining Championship outfit Preston where he spent two years within their youth setup.
Speaking about the news, Charlie is pleased to continue his spell at Cobh and looking forward to the season ahead,
“I was eager to sign back as I think we proved in our performances at the end of the season that we are well able to compete at the top end of the league. Our goal is to still be in contention for the play-offs at the break and we’re confident of achieving that.
Last year was my first season playing in this league and I could see that anyone is able to beat anyone. I learned a lot playing at this level. Mistakes and poor starts are punished. That should stand to me for the new season and I can’t wait to get going.”
