Waterford forward Michael O’Connor has confirmed that he has left the Blues on Tuesday evening.

The Co. Louth native joined Alan Reynolds’ side on loan from Linfield in January having spent the end of the 2019 with the club on loan.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone connected to Waterford FC, unfortunately my time at the club has come to an end,” the 21-year-old said on his Twitter account this evening.

“The fans and the people of Waterford have been brilliant to me during my time there. I’d like to thank all the staff/coaches – Franny/Alan Reynolds especially for helping me improve as a player/professional.

“Finally, to the fans, thanks for all your support and I wish you and Waterford all the best for the future.”

O’Connor departs the RSC having been made club captain ahead of the start of the 2020 campaign, where he made four appearances for the club.
