Portadown Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Alan O’Sullivan from Warrenpoint Town on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 27 year old striker began his career with Home Farm in his native Republic of Ireland before joining Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen in 2012 and having subsequent spells at Shelbourne and Athlone Town before joining Warrenpoint Town from Malahide in January 2018.

The Dubliner has been capped at various levels for the Republic of Ireland from U16 up to U19 and so far this season has 4 goals for Warrenpoint Town.

On O’Sullivan’s move to Shamrock Park Ports boss Niall Currie commented

With Alan’s pedigree in the Irish League we’re delighted to get him on board after been very successful at Warrenpoint where he’s been for quite a long time.

With Warrenpoint Town signing Johnny McMurray we felt there was an opportunity so after speaking to Barry Gray things evolved and thankfully we were able to get Alan on loan for the remainder of the season. We’re delighted, he’s at a great age and he was very pleased with our interest and we were pleased with how positive he was about the club.

We know Alan can score goals and what we need to make sure of now is being creative to be able to feed him and get him the ball and we’ll be trying our very best to do that as if we can keep creating the chances we have been, Alan will be a great addition to the club and the forward line.

We’re very pleased with what we’ve done in relation to Cathiar, Benny, Paul and now Alan – we feel we’ve rectified the issue up top and now we need to get them some supply and that’s going to be the focus and what we’re working hard on.
