Cork City have added another big name to their panel with the signing of Kenny Browne from St Pat's.

The Waterford native enjoyed a very successful stint in Inchicore, winning every major honour and he is confident he can help the runners up of the past two years push on and secure a title.

“I’m thrilled to get it done; I can’t wait to meet the lads and get started on working hard for pre-season," said Browne.

 “For me, this is probably the biggest club in Ireland. Cork City definitely have the biggest fanbase and it has always been my favourite away ground to play at. I’m really excited, it’s a massive football city and there is massive potential there. I just can’t wait to get down and get going.

“I’ve won a league and a cup, so I bring some experience, and I would like to think I am good defender as well! There are a lot of top players here, so I am under no illusions. I’m not going to come down here and stroll into the team, I need to work hard to get into the team.

“As soon as I spoke to John, I liked his manner, the way he deals with things. He’s straight up with you and that’s what I want. I’m excited, I wanted a new challenge, I have been in Dublin for the last four or five years, so when Cork City came in there was only one place I wanted to be.

“As a club, the target has to be to win the league, it’s as simple as that. Looking in from the outside, I don’t think Cork City are a million miles away and, if we can add a bit more to the squad and keep the best players here, there’s no reason why we can’t win the league.”
