Striker Mark O’Sullivan has left Cork City and will not bhe returning for the 2017 season.
O’Sullivan will be returning to work and playing football on a part time basis.
A brilliant servant to the club he scored 25 goals in 88 appearances.
Speaking to Cork City’s official website, manager John Caulfield had this to say,
“Marky has been fantastic for us since he came in. He would have been relatively unknown to a lot of people but he took the league by storm in his first season and he has been a key member of our squad over the last three years. At this stage in his life, he is going back to full-time work outside of football, so he has decided to return to part-time football.”
“Myself and John Cotter worked with Marky for a number of years in non-league football also. He was the top amateur player in the country for many years and, although he came relatively late to League of Ireland, he showed the ability and quality that we all know he has. It was a real pleasure to see how he took to League of Ireland football and how the Cork City fans took to him as well. On behalf of everyone at the club, I would like to thank Marky for his hard work and dedication to the club and wish him the very best of luck in the future.”
