Wayne Cooney (born 23 March 1968) is a former association football player who played in the League of Ireland during the 1990s.


Born in Birmingham, Cooney started his career at Norwich City before returning to Dublin to sign for Noel King's Shamrock Rovers side in 1988. He made his debut on 4 September [1] and became a popular figure with the fans in his 4 years at Rovers. He made a total of 127 appearances scoring 6 times for the Hoops.

He then moved to Dundalk. After a couple of seasons at Oriel Park, he became Turlough O'Connor's first signing for Bohemians where he scored his debut for Bohs on 3 January 1994 in a 2-0 league win over Cobh Ramblers.[2] He made 4 appearances in European competition for Bohs, all of them in the 1995 Intertoto Cup.
