FORMER CORK CITY DEFENDER Colm Horgan has joined Derry City for the 2020 season, the Premier Division side has announced

The 25-year-old has been training with the club and appeared as a second-half substitute in a friendly against Drogheda on Friday night.

Horgan, who debuted for Salthill Devon in the 2010 season, went on to line out for Galway United and played a key role in their promotion to the top flight in the 2015 season.

He remained at Galway until the end of the 2017 season, before departing for Cork City on a two-year contract.

He lined out for the Leeside outfit 20 times in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division last season. His older brother Daryl — an Ireland international who is now at Hibernian — previously lined out for Salthill Devon, Sligo Rovers, Cork City, Dundalk and Preston North End, while younger sibling Kevin is a goalkeeper with Galway United. 

Ex-Cork City captain Conor McCormack returned to Derry City in December, while Republic of Ireland U21 winger Stephen Mallon penned a six-month loan deal with the Candystripes earlier this month.

Derry City are due to kick off their 2020 season away to champions Dundalk on Friday, 14 February.
