24 May 2017

Coventry City can confirm that Liam O’Brien has agreed a contract with the football club and will officially join the Sky Blues on 1st July.

The 25 year old goalkeeper has signed a two year deal with the Sky Blues, following the expiry of his contract with Portsmouth.  

O’Brien came through the ranks at Fratton Park and was capped at England Under 19 level while at the club. He left Pompey initially in 2010 following their relegation from the Premier League, and went on to have spells at Barnet and Brentford before moving to Dagenham and Redbridge.

At the Daggers, 6 foot 4 O’Brien made 39 appearances and in 2016 returned to Portsmouth on a short-term deal. 

Manager Mark Robins said: “We are pleased to complete the signing of Liam.

“Liam is a quality goalkeeper, who we will be working hard with to maximise his potential.

“We are building a club, not just a team, for our short term and long term aims. We need players for all levels of the club, with the ability to fight for a first team spot and to push everyone else in the squad further.

“Liam is a good age and has the attitude which we need at this club, and we’re looking forward to starting work with him.”
