Premier Division Cork City have confirmed the signing of English trio Joe Redmond, Reyon Dillon and Henry Ochieng ahead of the 2020 campaign.

Irish underage international Redmond joins on loan from Birmingham City, while Dillon and Ochieng arrive from Corinthian Casuals and Wingate & Finchley.

Speaking on news of his new trio of signings, City boss Neale Fenn said; “We needed a few more bodies in the squad; we were searching for the players we wanted, so I am very pleased to get the three boys in.

“I would have worked with Henry at Leyton Orient when I was there a few years ago, and I am very pleased to have him on board.

“He has a good engine, he is good on the ball, he will work hard, and he will keep us ticking over in midfield.”

He added on the arrivals of forward Dillon and Redmond; “Reyon (Dillon) is a striker who started out at Crystal Palace. He has dropped down the leagues a bit and found his way out of professional football, but we are giving him a chance of getting back into it.”

“Joe is a very, very good defender and is very good on the ball as well. He is obviously coming in on a loan deal from Birmingham City until the summer.

“He wants to get games, so we feel this is a good move for him and for us.”

Fenn finished; “We are hoping to get another couple of players in, over the weekend or maybe early next week.”
