Club Statement: Anthony Pilkington departs

Club News

Cardiff City Football Club can confirm that Anthony Pilkington has left the Bluebirds by mutual agreement.

Having joined us in 2014, Anthony went on to make 111 appearances for Cardiff City FC, scoring 23 goals and contributing eight assists.

Although signed for his attributes as a wide player, Anthony would later adopt a centre-forward role, scoring a number of key goals for the club. His last-minute equaliser at Sheffield United during our promotion campaign of 2017-18 will be fondly remembered for years to come, whilst his overall contribution during the 2015-16 campaign accounted for 23% of the side’s total goals.

We’d like to thank Anthony for his efforts during the past four and a half years and wish him the very best for the next step in his career.
