Mossley ace in Chorley switch

Date published: 19 December 2012


CENTRE-HALF Keil O’Brien has left Mossley to join Chorley for an undisclosed fee.

The 6ft 4in defender departed the Evo-Stik League Division One North side after a week of negotiations between the two clubs. The fee will help general running costs at the club ground.

Mossley player-manager Steve Halford said: “We have to be sensible and look after the best interests of the club. While you never like to see any of your top players go, we have to make ends meet like everyone else. Kiel leaves with the best wishes of everyone at Mossley.”

O’Brien (20) joined the Lilywhites in 2011 on an extended loan from Northwich Victoria. The switch was made permanent and he has since caught the eye of several visiting scouts.

O’Brien has been an integral part of the Mossley side that sits at the top of the table.
