Further to media reports earlier this week, Shelbourne Football Club is now in a position to announce the appointment of David O’Connor as its new Chief Executive Officer.

A former League of Ireland player, O’Connor represented UCD AFC, Shamrock Rovers, and Limerick FC during a nine-year career.

In addition to running the day-to-day business of the Club, O’Connor will be responsible for implementing the Club’s Strategic Plan, in accordance with and subject to the directions of the Chairman and the Board of Management. He will oversee Shelbourne FC’s work in building on the volunteer culture of the Club and in fostering its broader operational cohesion.

O’Connor said: "I am incredibly honoured to become part of this new chapter in Shelbourne Football Club’s illustrious history. Shelbourne FC remain one of the biggest clubs in Ireland and the opportunity to help it return to where it belongs, at the top tier of Irish football, is an incredibly exciting prospect. The club consists of some of the most dedicated, passionate, and creative people I have come across in the League and I look forward to working with everyone at the club in helping to create more unforgettable times ahead.

“I have always been passionate about the development and potential of the League of Ireland, starting out as a supporter in my teenage years, then as a professional player, and now in the position of Chief Executive Officer. It is a fantastic opportunity for me to use my passion and experience to help the club develop and grow both on and off the field.”

David’s passion, experience, and footballing background make him a valuable addition to our club and we are delighted to welcome him as Chief Executive Officer.
