Brandon O'Neill (born 12 April 1994) is an Australian football (soccer) player who plays as a defensive midfielder who plays for Australian A-League club Sydney FC.

Club career[edit]

Perth Glory[edit]

Born in Perth, Australia, O'Neill signed a youth contract with A-League club Perth Glory in 2010 and then re-signed again in 2011. He made his professional debut in the 2011–12 A-League season on 18 March 2012 in a round 26 clash against Gold Coast United at the Robina Stadium.[1]

On 3 May 2012 it was announced he had signed a two-year senior contract with Perth Glory[2]

Sydney FC[edit]

On 25 May 2015, O'Neill signed a two-year contract with Sydney FC.[3]

O'Neill scored his first A-League goal in the Sydney Derby on Saturday 8 October 2016 by bending a free kick around the wall from just outside the penalty area into the top right corner. He scored his second goal of the season, also from a free kick against Melbourne City on Friday 24 February 2017 by curling the ball over the wall and into the top corner.[4]

Following performances which made him a key member of the starting squad, Sydney FC re-signed O'Neill for another two years on 13 December 2016.[5]

On 26 March 2017, O'Neill scored his third goal for Sydney FC away at Perth Glory, with a low and hard shot from outside the box, as the Sky Blues ran out 3–0 winners and secured the premiers plate.[6]
