MANSFIELD Town today completed the signing of defender Luke O’Neill on a one year contract.

The 19-year-old right back, who was released by Leicester City only five weeks ago, made 21 appearances on loan at Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Kettering last season.

He made his debut for the Foxes’ first team shortly after his 17th birthday.

O’Neill, who has represented England at U17 level told “I was impressed with the stadium, the manager and the set-up (at Field Mill) and those are the main reasons why I have signed.

“My aims are to play as many first team games as possible and to gain promotion.”

O’Neill will link up with the rest of the squad tomorrow for the first day of pre-season training.
