SIGNING: O'Sullivan rejoins the Reds

Winger John O'Sullivan has today signed a three-year contract with the Reds

17 June 2021

Accrington Stanley have today completed the signing of former Reds winger John O'Sullivan on a three-year contract.

O'Sullivan previously played for the club during the 2014/15 and 2016/17 season, with the Irishman scoring six goals and providing seven assists across his two spells.

Having only joined the club the previous day, the winger then marked his Stanley debut with two goals and an assist against Northampton Town in John Coleman's first game back in charge of the club.

The 27-year-old then had spells with both Carlisle United and Blackpool, before signing a two-year deal with Morecambe in July 2019.

O'Sullivan made a total of 86 appearances for The Shrimps, with the Dublin-born winger playing a pivotal role in helping the club secure promotion to Sky Bet League One last season via the Play-Offs.

Manager John Coleman said: "I have known Johnno a long time, I obviously signed him for two loan spells here and signed him for Southport as well.

"Whenever he has been with us, he has done well. He knows us inside out and his type of character fits with the Accrington mould and he is a very good footballer.

"He has always played well for us and hopefully he will hit the ground running after a big season last season."

O'Sullivan said: "John (Coleman) and Jimmy (Bell) have always got the best out of me, they know me best.

"I have had two good loan spells at Accrington and I played some of my best football last season so hopefully I can carry this on. I can't wait for the season to start now."

A first interview video with John will be uploaded to the club's official YouTube channel once pre-season is underway, CLICK HERE to find out more!
