Cobh sign Nathan O’Connell

Midfielder Nathan O’Connell has become the second player to sign for the club today, following the opening of the summer transfer window.

The Cobh native began his career with Springfield Ramblers at schoolboys level before spending a season with our U17 side in 2017. He then enjoyed spells at Carrigaline United and Cobh Wanderers, picking up Munster Senior League experience. The 21 year old was most recently with UCC and now steps up to the League of Ireland First Division for the first time.

“Training has gone well the last few weeks, it was tough coming back into the thick of things when all of the lads were mid-season. But I feel that I’ve gotten my fitness and sharpness back and I feel good. All the team have been really welcoming and we train well as a squad every night. Hopefully we can push on, keep getting good results and make the play offs come the end of the season.”

Nathan will hope to make his Ramblers’ senior debut in tomorrow’s game away to Bray Wanderers, which is live on LOITV here.

In the meantime, tomorrow is also the deadline for our hugely popular Adare Manor Grand Prize Draw, with tickets only €10 and available to buy here!
