Ambitious Waterford FC have made a significant statement of intent by completing the signing of experienced striker Mark O'Sullivan after his departure from Cork City.

O'Sullivan was a big player for John Caulfield over the past three seasons but parted company with the club at the end of the season citing the demands of full-time football.

But Waterford boss Alan Reynolds and Director of Football Pat Fenlon have convinced the player to commit to their project as a new regime target promotion from the First Division next term. Waterford have also signed defender Conor Whittle from Wexford Youths.

The announcement of the O'Sullivan and Whittle captures bring the number of signings Waterford have announced this week to 13.

Head Coach Reynolds said: “As you’ve seen, we’ve set a high standard and have brought in a high calibre of player by trying to sell them the project of what we’re trying to do here.

“We will have a number of trial players coming in because we need the right type of player and of the right standard. We are just asking everyone to get behind us to try make this project successful.”
