Diamonds tie up O'Connor signing

Rushden & Diamonds

Rushden and Diamonds have completed the signing of striker Aaron O'Connor, who was recently released by Mansfield.

The 25-year-old scored 80 goals for Gresley Rovers between 2004 and 2007, and has also had spells at Scunthorpe, Nuneaton Borough and Grays Athletic.

"His record at a lower level certainly suggests that he's a natural goal-scorer if he gets the right service," said Rushden manager Justin Edinburgh.

"Like Craig Farrell, he brings a phenomenal work-rate."

O'Connor nearly signed for Rushden & Diamonds in 2006 under then-manager Paul Hart.

He played in pre-season friendlies, but returned to Gresley.
