Former Longford Town keeper Michael Kelly pens short-term deal with MK Dons

Michael Kelly has completed a move to join English League Two side MK Dons on a short-term deal.

Kelly, 27, was most recently on the books of Carlisle United having joined them from Bray Wanderers during the 2022 summer transfer window.

And while he failed to feature too much there, he was part of a side that were promoted to League One.

He will be hoping to repeat the trick at MK Dons – with Graham Alexander’s side already having Dawson Devoy, Warren O’Hora and Darragh Burns on their books.

Kelly has also previously played for Cabinteely, Shamrock Rovers B, Bohemians and Longford Town.

“I’m delighted to be here,” Kelly told “As soon as I heard MK Dons were interested, I was keen to get on board.

“The lads are flying so far this season and hopefully I can add to the group and help us kick on.

“I like to think I am an imposing goalkeeper - I like to use my size and frame to my advantage.

“I’m also quite a technical goalkeeper with the ball at my feet, but I’ll be looking to do anything I can to help the team push on.”
