Aidan Downes (born 24 July 1988) is an Irish professional footballer who last played for Bohemians in the League of Ireland Premier Division. He is currently playing with Mornington SC, a club based in Melbourne, Australia.
Aidan quickly progressed through the youth set-up at Everton until an injury suffered at the end of the 2005/2006 season slowed him down. In the latter part of the season, Downes linked up with Yeovil on loan, scoring his first senior goal at Swansea. Everton released the striker at the end of the season.
On 21 May 2008 it was announced that Downes had signed for Yeovil on a permanent basis on a two-year contract. He joined officially on 1 July 2008 when his contract expired. He quickly impressed both management and fans during his time at Huish Park,especially at the Liberty Stadium where he scored a vital goal against League One Champions Swansea City, which in turn guaranteed safety in League One for the Glovers. He remained at the club for two seasons until 13 May 2010 when he was released along with three other players.
Aidan spent part of the 2011 season training with Bohemians and signed for Pat Fenlon's men in June of that year on amateur terms. He made his debut for the club in a 3-1 win over Dundalk at Oriel Park on 1 July.
