City on O'Brien*:

A strong and assured goalkeeper, Billy O’Brien proved his worth to earn a pro contract with City in July 2014.

Possessing excellent distribution and handling, the Bury-born keeper also has impressive reach thanks to his 6ft stature and is brilliant at claiming crosses, providing confidence for the defence in front of him.

A lively and outgoing character, Billy wore the no.1 shirt for the u18s last term as they romped to the North Division title, and gained European experience as part of Patrick Vieira’s u19 UEFA Youth League squad.

His stunning save in the 1-0 last 16 win over Atletico was one of the standout moments from Billy's promising 2013/14 campaign.

After cutting his teeth at international level with Wales u19s, O'Brien joined Hyde FC on loan for the 2014/15 season on 1 August 2014.
