Corey O'Keeffe Signs On Loan

3 August 2021

Rochdale Football Club is delighted to announce that Corey O’Keeffe has signed on loan from Mansfield Town.

The 23-year-old full-back joins on a deal until January.

Speaking after completing his move, O’Keeffe said:

“I’m delighted. As soon as it came up as an option, I just wanted to get it done as soon as possible.

“Obviously it’s a good club that wants to bounce straight back up. I want to take on the challenge and get playing football, so wanted to get here and get it done.

“I spoke to him [manager Robbie Stockdale] on the phone and everything he said sounds positive. I want to be on board and try to get promoted.

“I’m looking forward to meeting the lads and getting started.”

O’Keeffe joined Birmingham City’s Academy in 2008, before signing a scholarship with the club in 2014.

He made his professional debut for the Blues in December 2016, before joining Solihull Moors on loan the following season, making 13 appearances in the National League.

In the 2019/20 campaign, the Irishman joined Macclesfield Town on loan, where appeared 31 times in League Two for the Silkmen.

After leaving Birmingham in the summer of 2020, the full-back signed a two-year deal with Mansfield Town, making 17 appearances in all competitions last season.

Welcome to the club, Corey!
