Sean Philip O'Hanlon (born 2 January 1983) is an English footballer, primarily a defender, who currently plays for Carlisle United in League One. O'Hanlon has previously played for Swindon Town, Milton Keynes Dons and Hibernian.

Career[edit]

O'Hanlon started his career in his native Merseyside with Everton,[2] but he did not make an appearance for their first team. He joined Swindon Town, initially on loan, and he became a regular in their first team squad and was made team captain after the departure of Andy Gurney in 2005.[2]

He signed for Milton Keynes Dons in 2006 and featured regularly in their team.[2] One of the most notable moments of O'Hanlon's career was when he scored a goal with a towering header at Wembley Stadium in the 2008 Football League Trophy Final victory against Grimsby Town.[2] He missed most of the 2009–10 season due to a knee injury.[2] At the end of the 2010–11 season, O'Hanlon was told his contract would not be renewed, despite having made 37 appearances that season.[2]

O'Hanlon signed for Scottish Premier League club Hibernian on a two-year contract in June 2011.[2][3] He lost his place in the Hibs first team after Pat Fenlon was appointed manager.[4] O'Hanlon left Hibs by mutual consent on 31 August 2012.[4] He played as a trialist for junior club Bonnyrigg in November 2012.[5]

O'Hanlon signed for Football League One club Carlisle United on 11 January 2013, agreeing a contract with the club until the end of the 2012–13 season.[6][7] on 12 April 2013 he signed a two-year extension to his contract,
