Livingston FC is delighted to announce the signing of defender Sean Kelly on a one-year-deal.
The versatile left-sided defender started out his career with St Mirren, enjoying loan spells with Montrose and East Stirlingshire before going on to make over 100 appearances across three seasons for the Buddies.
A season down south with AFC Wimbledon followed, seeing Sean play 32 times with the English League 1 side before returning to Scotland to join Ross County in the Premier League for the 2017-18 season. He was part of the successful Staggies side, alongside Josh Mullin, who stormed to the Championship title in 2018/19, before departing the Highlands and moving to Falkirk last season to become Lee Miller’s first signing for the Bairns.
After a period training with the Lions, manager David Martindale makes Sean his 12th signing of the Summer.
The 27-year-old will wear the number 24 shirt and goes straight into the squad for tonight’s Premier Sports Cup clash with Raith Rovers.
Manager David Martindale said: “I’m very happy to bring Sean into the club. He’s a player I know very well and someone I have always felt should be playing in the Premier League.
“Sean was in training with us for a spell last season but both budget wise and player wise, I was at my maximum and already had very good cover in the centre-half area.
“I predominantly see Sean as a left centre-half and that’s where I see him being most utilised here, albeit, he can cover the left back area too.
“He will provide us with competition in the defensive area and I feel it’s vitally important that we have players who can do a job in a few positions.
“I’m delighted to get Sean on board – a very capable footballer who I know first-hand is a very good character both on and off the park. He knows the game inside out and I have no doubt that he’ll be a great signing for us.
“Sean has signed an initial one-year-contract with incentives leading to a further year.”
Welcome to Livingston, Sean!
