CORK CITY manager John Caulfield’s advice to new signing Liam Nash is simple – score some goals.
The 23-year-old English striker, previously with Gillingham, officially joined the Rebel Army yesterday, having impressed in a trial during City’s trip to Kerry last month, scoring three goals in two games.
“We are very happy to have Liam coming in,” Caulfield said.
“It has been ongoing for a few weeks, so we are delighted that everything is now resolved and Liam can officially sign.
"Liam has been in with us for a few weeks and he done has very well.
"He is a very good finisher and we are happy to have him in.
“Liam sees this as a real opportunity; he knows he needs to come here and get goals.
"He’s been in training and has been at the last few games, including the President’s Cup, so he knows the intensity and the standard of this league.
"He looks like a real poacher and we believe he is a guy who can get some goals for us.”
Nash, who will wear number 29 for City, is keen to get going in a green shirt.
“It’s brilliant to get finally get it over the line and I am very excited for this new chapter,” he said.
“It is a new challenge and I can’t wait to get going.
"The lads are great, the staff are great and we are looked after very well here.
"The training is good, the tempo, the intensity… and I am really looking forward to getting my head down and getting some games.
“I feel fit and ready to go, and hopefully, when I get the opportunity, I will take it with both hands.
"I want to get myself back out there, my confidence, scoring goals and working hard.
"I just want to give everything on match day and hopefully progress and get some goals!”
It was a day of movement on the squad front for City, with attacker Ronan Coughlan departing as Nash arrived.
The Limerick native had signed from Bray Wanderers during last season but struggled for game-time and is moving to find regular football.
In addition, defender John Kavanagh has joined Finn Harps on loan, having been with the Donegal club in the second half of last season, spending the first part of 2018 with Waterford.
