Billy O’Brien was born on 21st November 1995, and despite the fact that he was born in Bury he is a proud Welshman.
The 21 year old started his career in illustrious company at the Etihad Stadium. working his way through the ranks up to the Under 23 squad.
Billy has also represented his country at Under 21 level and has completed successful loan spells at Hyde United and most recently St Mirren where he impressed with a string of fine performances.
O’Brien was a fans favourite in Paisley, and someone who the club did not really want to see leave. However they were unable to thrash out a contract, and Billy was released by Manchester City in the summer of 2017.
Sir John was then quick to snap up the Welshman, and he will now compete with Shwan Jalal to wear the ‘keeper’s jersey.
