'Things have not worked out' - Elding ends disappointing spell at Cork City

The 32-year-old striker has departed the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division side six months after joining from Sligo Rovers.

CORK CITY HAVE confirmed the departure of striker Anthony Elding from the club.

The English striker joined the Rebels back in November after one-season spell at Sligo Rovers — where he scored 19 goals including a dramatic winner in the FAI Cup final at the Aviva Stadium.

Big things were expected from the 32-year-old former Grimsby Town man but he has managed just one league appearance (on the opening day of the season) due to injury.

“I would like to thank everyone at the club for their support since I signed,” Elding told the club.

Things have not worked out as we would have hoped, but sometimes that happens in football.

I would also like to give a special mention to Timmy Murphy for helping myself and my family settle in. I want to wish the club the very best of luck for the rest of the season and for the future.”
