CORK City’s Alan Bennett paid tribute to those involved in making his testimonial on Saturday such a success.
“That’s what our club is about,” he said.
“Other codes celebrate teams that have been successful in the past and why shouldn’t we? It’s important that we see that there are former players around the city and around the county and around the country and they all enjoy coming here and it’s brilliant.
“The two title wins were special, both nights here against Derry in 2005 and 2017. The first half of that season in 2017 was the best I’ve been involved in, ever, and that game against Derry in 2005 was the best game I’ve been involved in. That’s the way I split them up in my own head and the cup wins are in their own section.
As to the future, Bennett isn’t certain exactly what will happen but he knows he’ll still be involved with City.
“Whether I’m a player, coach or supporter, I’ll definitely be involved with Cork City.”
