Conor Stephen O'Brien (born October 20, 1988) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Wiener Neustadt in the Austrian Football Bundesliga.

Youth career[edit]

A Long Island native, O'Brien was one of the most decorated players at Bucknell University, finishing his career 2nd in school history in assists and 9th in goals. He also was named first-team all-Patriot League twice, winning the league's Offensive Player of the Year Award twice.[1] He also became Bucknell's first All-American in 33 years and was named a finalist for the Hermann Trophy, given to the national player of the year.[2]

Club career[edit]

O'Brien was not drafted by any MLS club, and instead signed with Blokhus FC in the third tier of Denmark.[3]

Following the 2010-11 season, he signed an eighteen-month contract with SønderjyskE in the Danish Superliga.[4] In his first year, he scored three goals in twenty-five league appearances. After scoring four goals in twenty league appearances during the first half of the 2012-13 Danish Superliga, O'Brien's contract expired, and he did not choose to resign with the club.[5]

O'Brien then signed with reigning SuperLiga winners FC Nordsjælland.
