Former Longford Town and Shelbourne forward David O’Sullivan has joined Leinster Senior League side Bangor GG.

O’Sullivan retired from League of Ireland football in 2018 after a season with Shelbourne, following a previous five-year stint with Longford.

The now 32-year-old joined Longford in January 2013, a year when he scored an incredible 21 goals in 28 league appearances for the Midlanders., as they unfortunately lost to Bray Wanderers in the promotion play-off final.

In 2014, the former Wayside Celtic forward scored another 21 goals in 28 league games as Longford earned promotion back to the top-flight.

He went on to score seven times in 30 league appearances in the 2015 Premier Division as Longford finished sixth, but in 2016 Longford finished bottom of the table and were relegated back to the First Division despite David's haul of eight goals from 31 league outings.

David then re-signed with Longford for the 2017 campaign but he would then leave Longford at the end of the 2017 season after five years. 

He joined Owen Heary’s Shelbourne for the 2018 season, but he was unable to fire the Reds to promotion despite his impressive 15-goal haul that season.

Also joining Bangor GG is former UCD midfielder Kevin Coffey, while the Crumlin based side have also confirmed the acquisition of Davey Mahon.
