Tue, 23/11/2021 - 19:00

Glentoran Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of striker Michael O’Connor, who recently left newly promoted Shelbourne in Dublin.

Michael (23) has been a full-time player since starting at Dundalk as an academy player. His career to date includes spells at Shamrock Rovers, Linfield and Ross County. He is the brother of our midfielder Ciaran O’Connor and will be eligible to play for Glentoran once the transfer window opens in January.”

Mick McDermott: “I’m delighted to have got Michael signed and I know he will increase our attacking options for the second half of the season. It’s well known that we tried to sign him when he left Linfield and following that, so its great to finally get him. Michael is well known to most of our players, and he knows the league as he’s been to quite a few of our matches this season, along with Ciaran.

I’ve said all along that when good players become available, we’ll be in for them. That will continue to be the case.”

Welcome to the Oval Michael.
