Imps swoop for Northern Ireland midfielder

Lincoln City have completed their third summer signing after the arrival of Northern Ireland midfielder Michael O’Connor.

The 30-year-old, who previously had a loan spell at Sincil Bank during the 2008/09 season, joins the Imps on a one-year deal with an option to extend that beyond the summer of 2019.

During his loan spell at Lincoln O’Connor made 10 appearances and scored one goal.

O’Connor was offered a new contract by Notts County, where he made 42 appearances, but the experienced midfielder chose to join Lincoln instead.

O’Connor, who has been capped by his country 11 times, also previous played for Crewe, Scunthorpe, Rotherham and Port Vale.
