Rochdale Football Club is delighted to announce that Eoghan O’Connell has signed a new deal to remain at the club.
The Dale Captain has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract.
O’Connell has been at the club since the summer of 2019 and has made 81 appearances during his time at the Crown Oil Arena, including 43 appearances in 2020/21.
“I’m very happy to get the deal done. It has been ongoing for a while so I’m glad it’s all done now and I’m very happy to be back,” he said after committing his future to the club.
“I’ve had two years here and I’m happy and settled, as is my family. The relationship I have with the manager is well documented so it’s a huge thing for me to get the chance to play for him again.
“I’m delighted to have signed and I’m looking forward to getting going again.
“I know last season didn’t work out the way we wanted it to. We want to put right what happened. I’ve been relegated before in my career and it eats away at you until you get the chance to get back in again and put it right, and we’re all itching to do that now.”
Chairman Simon Gauge added: “I’m thrilled and excited that Eoghan has signed a new contract today. He is a leader at the club and this is a real sign of intent for the upcoming season.”
