Riley O'Neill (born September 9, 1985 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) is a Canadian professional soccer player who currently plays for Victoria Highlanders in the USL PDL.

Career[edit]

On January 18, 2007 O'Neill was drafted by Colorado Rapids in the third round (36th overall) of the 2007 MLS Supplemental Draft. His rights were traded to Toronto FC on April 19, 2007.[1] However, he never signed with Toronto, opting to try his luck abroad.

O'Neill signed with German club SV Wilhelmshaven who played in the Regionalliga Nord in 2007 through 2008, before moving to Eintracht Braunschweig. He struggled for playing time with Braunschweig, spending most his time with their second team. O'Neill moved back to SV Wilhelmshaven in 2009.

O'Neill moved again in 2011, this to MYPA who played in the Finnish Veikkausliiga. He managed twelve goals over two seasons with the club, but he became a free agent at the end of their 2012 season.

The Victoria Highlanders announced the signing of Riley O'Neill as one of their over-age players for the 2013 May–July summer USL PDL season.[2]
