Upon expiration of his contract on June 30th this year, Bluebirds stalwart Matthew Connolly will leave the club for pastures new.

A warrior on the field and a gentleman off it, Matt has given eight years of his career to the Bluebirds since signing from Queens Park Rangers in 2012. He was part of our 2013 and 2018 promotion campaigns and scored seven times across 146 first team appearances.

Matt was voted as the Club’s Player of the Season in May 2016 for a stellar 2015/16 campaign.

On behalf of all of us at Cardiff City Football Club we’d like to wish Matt the very best for the future and look forward to seeing him back as our guest in the not too distant future.

We’d also like to thank a number of other departing players for their contributions to Cardiff City FC, notably Jazz Richards who leaves us after three seasons of service and Omar Bogle following his recent time on loan at Eredivisie club ADO Den Haag.

We can confirm that Danny Ward will remain part of the first team squad for the remainder of the 2019/20 season following the completion of associated paperwork. Discussions are ongoing regarding Danny’s longer-term future.

A full list of those professionals leaving the club with our best wishes this summer is as follows:

Matthew Connolly
