Cork City have signed former Dublin City winger Adam Rundle after a successful trial at the Airtricity Premier Division club.
Rundle played eight games under Roddy Collins back in 2004, but has over 300 appearances for various English clubs including Darlington, Mansfield Town, and Rochdale. Speaking to the club's official website, the 28-year-old expressed his delight at signing for the Leesiders. "I loved the week I had here, the set-up, the lads, the training and the manager all impressed me," Rundle said. "It was exactly what I was looking for, so it is great to be on board.
"I have been a professional footballer all of my life, but for family reasons I had to take break for the last few months to be at home. Everything has settled down now and I am looking to get back into the professional game. Luckily enough I have impressed Tommy [Dunne, Cork City manager] enough to get a chance here and it is a chance for me to make a new start now."
Tommy Dunne announced his new signing, telling the club's official website of his pleasure at bringing the experienced winger to Turners Cross. “I am delighted that Adam is coming in," Dunne said. "He is a wide player, which is a position we needed to fill and is a good addition to the squad. He is a naturally left footed player and he also has good experience having played a lot in England. He came in on trial and did very well, and he has played here before, so he is no stranger to the league.
"For personal reasons he had to take a break from playing professionally for a short spell, but he is raring to go and when he came in on trial, you could see that he has played at a good level and he wants to get back up the ladder. He has been playing in England for a while, so maybe he wants to experience playing elsewhere, and I also know that he feels he has a lot football in him, so we are look forward to seeing him in action."
Meanwhile, Dunne has confirmed that Kevin Murray will captain Cork City for the forthcoming Airtricity Premier Division campaign.
