05. Conor Keeley



Keeley had played for Shelbourne at underage level and was handed his senior debut by Kevin Doherty in the final game of the 2015 season, before making a further ten appearances in 2016.

The centre-half then spent four seasons at Cabinteely, where he made over 75 appearances for the club, before joining Ballymena in January 2021.

The 25-year-old scored the equaliser on his final appearance for David Jeffrey’s side against Carrick Rangers in the Irish Cup, finding the top corner to send the game to extra-time, with Ballymena winning on penalties.
