Keil O’Brien arrives at the JD

19 June 2014

Central defender arrives from non-league Chorley

Shakers sign Kiel O’Brien from Conference North side Chorley.


6 Foot 4 central defender Keil began his career with Manchester United before joining Chorley, via Mossley during the Christmas period of 2012.  Keil quickly became a regular for the Magpies and was named young player of the year for Chorley last season as well as being named in the divisional team of the year following Chorley’s promotion to the Conference North as champions of the Northern Premier League.


Arriving at the JD Stadium as a free agent, Keil has signed a two year deal and he will link up with his new team mates next week when the first team squad return for pre-season training.
