Yeovil Town have recruited in their fifteenth signing of the summer, as part of their squad rebuilding plans for the 2011-12 season. He is former Swindon Town and Newcastle United winger Alan O'Brien, who trialled for the club earlier in the season before being let go, with a breakdown on personal terms blamed for the parting of the waves.
Now it appears that both parties have been able to do a deal. He has signed a short term contract that will keep him at the club until January, and will give the club a much needed option down the left flank since the departure of Andy Welsh to Carlisle United.
O'Brien is a 26 year old winger, who was released by Swindon Town just before their relegation into League Two. He spent two years at the County Ground, and before that had two years with Hibernian. He started his career at Newcastle United, and has also had a loan spell with Carlisle United. He has five Republic of Ireland senior caps all gained during the 2006-07 season.
