Date of birth
Oscar O’Neil impressed in the centre of the field last term, during which he regularly took the captain's armband in the absence of academy graduate Melle Meulensteen.
He is another energetic midfielder with both attacking and defensive instincts, making perfectly for his box-to-box style.
Born in Lytham, O’Neil signed for PNE in September 2011 before beginning his scholarship last April. He is the son of Brian O’Neil, a former Scotland international midfielder who represented North End from 2003-06.
