Greg Bolger becomes the first of Cork City's double-winners to leave the club

Update 4.52pm: Greg Bolger has left Cork City to sign for Shamrock Rovers.

On arrival at the Tallaght Stadium, Bolger said: “The words Shamrock Rovers speaks for itself. It’s one of, if not the biggest club in the country and there’s the brand of football that Stephen is trying to play.

“I’ve played against Stephen in the league as well, I know the way he operates. He wants the game played the right way and I’d probably be of the same opinion as him.

“That’s what I’m looking forward to most, getting out there and playing football. It’s a new start here at Rovers.”

Original story: Greg Bolger has become the first member of Cork City's double-winning side to leave the club.

The midfielder has been with the Leesiders since the start of the 2016 season, helping them win two FAI Cups and a Premier Division title in that time.

Bolger says he made his decision to leave after a lot of thought, and thanked all those around the club.

“After a lot of thought I have decided my time at Cork City has come to an end,” Bolger wrote on Twitter.

“I would just like to say a big thank you to the people of Cork for their support over the last two years. It has been a pleasure to play in front of ye all at the Cross.

“A league and two cups (not bad eh). Also want to wish the lads the best of luck for the future, best dressing room I’ve ever been involved in.

“Thanks for the memories.”
