Former Ireland international joins Staines Town FC
The 28-year-old defender won two caps for the Boys in Green in 2007.

FORMER IRELAND INTERNATIONAL Joe O’Cearuill has joined Staines Town FC, the club have confirmed.

O’Cearuill, a London-born ex-Arsenal underage player, joins the club after being released by Conference Premier side Dover Athletic at the end of the season.

Staines Town, an Isthmian League Premier Division team, were relegated from the Conference South last season and count current Ireland international Harry Arter among their former (loan) players.

Speaking to the club’s official website, manager Nicky Forster said: “We are delighted to have secured the services of Joe this season, he has a great attitude for success and will sit well alongside Darren Purse at the back this season.”

In addition to starting out at Arsenal, O’Cearuill also had spells at Barnet, St Patrick’s Athletic and Forest Green Rovers among others.

The 28-year-old defender won two caps for Ireland in 2007 as part of their end-of-season US tour during Steve Staunton’s ill-fated reign as manager, featuring in games against Ecuador and Bolivia.
