Irish Premiership leaders Coleraine have boosted their squad by signing Cork City winger Stephen Dooley.

The 26-year-old, who helped Cork City achieve the League of Ireland League and FAI Cup double this year, will be starting his third spell at Coleraine.

Dooley has agreed a six-month deal with the option of another year.

"He is the perfect fit of what we are looking for at the minute. He is local and has always supported Coleraine," said Bannsiders manager Oran Kearney.

"We have kept close contact the last three or four years and came very close this time last year to signing him.

"He has trained with us regularly over that period so he knows a lot of the players.

"He wouldn't play for any other Irish League club and we will look forward to him being available in January."
