COBH RAMBLERS have recruited Ian Turner ahead of the League of Ireland season.
Most recently lining out in the Premier Division with St Patrick’s Athletic, the midfielder has made 183 league appearances over his career in domestic Irish football between Cork City, Limerick and St Pats.
“I’m delighted to sign for the club. I’m really looking forward to getting in and meeting my new teammates,” commented Turner.
Playing his schoolboy football with Wilton United, Turner came through the underage ranks at Cork City.
He made his first-team debut for City in their first-ever game as a supporters-run club away to Derry City back in 2010. When City made their return to the Premier in 2012, Turner scored three times in 25 league appearances and scored four more goals in 27 appearances in 2013.
Following a spell in Limerick, Turner returned to Cork City in 2016, making 16 appearances and was an unused sub in the FAI Cup final victory over Dundalk at the Aviva Stadium.
After returning again to Shannonside for a brief spell, the 29-year-old joined St Patrick’s Athletic in July 2017.
Turner’s first Ramblers appearance could come in the Munster Senior Cup quarter-final tie at home to Waterford FC, which will take place on Wednesday, January 23 at 7pm in St Colman’s Park.
