Cork City have announced that goalkeeper Mark McNulty has agreed to extend his stay with the club ahead of the forthcoming 2013 season.

Speaking to the club's official website, the 32-year-old said that he was 'delighted' to extend his stay at Turners Cross and said that he was 'excited' about the new season.

"I am delighted to have signed a new contract with the club," he said. "It looks like 2013 could be a good season for us and I am really excited to be a part of that."

He continued: "I think we had a decent season in 2012, but we were maybe a bit disappointed that we didn’t push up the table a bit more and challenge for a European spot.

"It wasn’t to be last season, but I really believe we have what it takes to mount a serious challenge for a top 3 or 4 place next season I believe there is a bright future for Cork City Football Club, and this is where I hope to spend the remainder of my playing days."

Cork City manager Tommy Dunne expressed his delight at securing McNulty's signature, describing the player as a 'top goalkeeper.

"I am delighted that Mark has signed back with us for another year," Dunne told "In my time with the club, Mark has proved his quality as a goalkeeper, and although he didn’t play a lot in his earlier years with the club, he is now showing that he is becoming a top goalkeeper.

"He is one of the experienced heads in the squad and he has a lot to offer the club," concluded the Cork boss.
