Aaron O'Driscoll Signs on Loan from Mansfield Town
Longford Town FC is delighted to announce the signing of Aaron O'Driscoll on loan from Mansfield Town.
21 year old O’Driscoll, who played schoolboy football for Cherry Orchard, was signed by Southampton in 2016 after a stint at Manchester City.
He then joined Mansfield Town after 4 years with the 'Saints'.
The highly rated centre-back will add huge reinforcement to Daire Doyle's defence as we shape up for our return to Premier Division football on March 20th.
Speaking to LTFC.ie on signing, Aaron, who must self isolate for two weeks upon returning to Ireland, explained his decision in signing for Longford;
After speaking to Daire over the last few weeks and hearing his plans for me and how the team wanted to play. I think it will be the perfect place for me to get back enjoying my football again...
When asked about his aims for his time in Red & Black, the 6ft 2 Dubliner kept it simple;
Hopefully I can come in and help the team do well in the league and impress the fans with my individual performances as-well.
Speaking last night following our friendly v Cobh Ramblers, Manager Daire Doyle announced the signing and his delight in also securing the services of goalkeeper Michael Kelly;
