LISTEN: New Limerick FC Recruit O’Connell ‘rearing to go’

New Limerick FC signing Clyde O’Connell may have been forgiven for turning down the chance to return to the club this summer. With players leaving on a weekly basis, Limerick appear to be in freefall off the pitch which is hindering progress on it.

However, the strong central midfielder turned centre-back’s desire to return to the Airtricity League and represent his county rages on regardless.

I have always wanted to go back and play with Limerick. The goal was to go back and play in January but several circumstances resulted in it not happening. I only wanted to stay out for a year.

To be honest, I didn’t even really want to go out for the year but things happened. In another way it was good to get away and I didn’t realise how much I ‘d miss training and the professional set-up. I am really happy to be back.

O’Connell also speaks about his time with junior club Regional United as well as his ambitions and the upcoming game against Longford Town.
