League One outfit Peterborough United have confirmed the departure of former St Patrick’s Athletic keeper Conor O’Malley.

The Westport native departs the Posh having joined the club in 2017 from a Liam Buckley managed Saints side. 

Prior to his time at Richmond Park, he also spent time at Shamrock Rovers and Mervue United – making over 20 senior appearances in the First Division.

O’Malley leaves Peterborough along with fellow shot-stopper Aaron Chapman and now former teammates Rhys Bennett, Alex Woodyard, Callum Cooke and Marcus Maddison.

“I would like to thank the six players for their efforts on behalf of the football club and wish them well for the future,” Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson told his club’s media team.  

“I would also like to thank Reece Brown, Sammie Szmodics and Josh Knight for their contribution to the club during their loan spells, which have now concluded.”

Elsewhere in League One, Gillingham have confirmed that Dubliner Mark Byrne’s contract has expired with the club.

However, the Gills have said that he has been invited to train with the club during pre-season to prove his match fitness levels and earn another contract.
