Shamrock Rovers F.C. confirm that defender Joey O’Brien has decided not to re-sign as a player for our 2022 Squad and will, instead, take up a coaching role at Shelbourne F.C.

As a self-professed Rovers fan we understand that this was not an easy decision for him to make and we wish him well.

Signed in 2018, Joey made 85 appearances for the first team scoring 4 goals. He has been part of the playing group that has won a trophy in each of the last three seasons and will be missed by the squad, management and the fans.

An SRFCTV video with Joey will be published on on Tuesday where Joey recalls his best memories with the Hoops and says his goodbye to the fans.
