DARRAGH O'CONNOR has become York City's seventh signing of the Summer, joining the club on a permanent contract from Scotland. 

Centre-halve O'Connor makes the switch to England after a spell in the Scottish Championship with Greenock Morton, having featured 68 times after initially signing for the club in 2022. 

Upon the expiration of his deal with the Ton, York have swooped to add defensive reinforcements to their first-team squad. 

Having been born in Croydon, England, O'Connor and his family made the move to Ireland in 2005, where he would eventually go o to play for Cloughbawn, Waterford, Shamrock Rovers and Wexford.

O'Connor would make 20 first-team appearances with the latter before earning a professional contract at Premier League outfit Leicester City, making the trip back to England in 2019. 

The 24-year-old would make four senior appearances for the Foxes in the EFL Trophy, whilst predominantly playing in Premier League 2 action.

O'Connor would eventually move into Scotland when joining Motherwell in 2021, before an impressive loan spell with Queen of the South in 2022. 

The centre-halve becomes City's seventh addition of the Summer, joining the likes of Tyrese Sinclair, Harrison Male, Joe Felix, Ollie Pearce, Ashley Nathaniel-George and Alex Hunt in permanent switches to North Yorkshire. 

He will challenge for a first-team position against Callum Howe, Adam Crookes, Ryan Fallowfield and Levi Andoh, after the exit of centre-halve Tyler Cordner to Ebbsfleet United last week.
