Biographical Text

Wayne O’Sullivan joined City from Plymouth Argyle and, after playing just ten games, had a long career in non-league football. 

Wayne started his career at Arsenal as a trainee in 2000 before moving to Home Park two years later. After failing to make the first-team, Wayne was released and signed for Exeter City ahead of the 2004/05 season. 

Wayne made his Exeter debut as a substitute in the opening game of the season against Morecambe and next appeared in the Tamworth game in September 2004. He scored in the 3-2 victory at Dagenham & Redbridge in December 2004 after which he only appeared four more times for the first-team. Wayne was released in May 2005 after eleven league and cup games.

Wayne signed for Newport County in time for the new season although his move to South Wales wasn't a great success as he only made eight appearances before being released. Then, after leaving Newport in May 2006, Wayne had a long career in non-league football playing for a host of clubs in the south east. Over the next seven or eight seasons these included Hendon, Stevenage Borough, Braintree Town, Hendon (again),  Arlesey Town, Hemel Hempstead Town, Bedfont Town, Northwood, Wingate and Finchley, Aylesbury and, in 2013/14, Beaconsfield.

[Wayne was one of two players with the same name who played for Plymouth within a few years of each other, the other (born 1974) making nearly a hundred appearances for Argyle before moving to Australia].
