Experienced striker O’Grady is back for a second spell at the club after originally arriving in 2008.

O’Grady began his professional career at Leicester City where he made 24 appearances for the Foxes in between loan spells out at Notts County and Rushden and Diamonds.

A one-year contract with Rotherham United followed which made Oldham sign him on a two-year deal for his first stint with the Latics.

It proved to be an unsuccessful time for O’Grady, but he impressed whilst being loaned out to the likes of Bury, Bradford, Stockport and Rochdale.

Rochdale took the option to make it a permanent deal in 2010 before he moved to Sheffield Wednesday a year later.

The Striker helped the South Yorkshire club earn promotion in 2012/13 before stints in the Championship with Barnsley, Brighton and Nottingham Forest.

O’Grady played at Chesterfield last season but following the Spireites relegation from the Football League he was allowed to leave.

He brings a wealth of experience to the team having played at every level of English Football.
