Hamilton Accies' Dan O'Reilly announces he is leaving club

Defender Dan O'Reilly has announced he is leaving Hamilton Accies following the club's relegation to League One.

The 28-year-old Irishman was a popular figure during his 18-month spell at New Douglas Park and had a penchant for netting goals at set-pieces.

He netted five goals in last season's Championship campaign, which saw Accies finish ninth and eventually lose out to Airdrie on penalties in the play-offs, where O'Reilly's spot-kick miss proved decisive.

O'Reilly also netted once on the road to helping Accies win the SPFL Trust Trophy in March, although he was sent off in the final, where Accies held out to beat Raith Rovers 1-0.

Announcing his departure today, he tweeted: " My time at Accies is over. Huge thanks to my team mates, management & staff for giving me the opportunity.

"The past two seasons brought obvious lows and many highs.

"I will always value my time here. Special thanks to the fans for their support to me personally. It meant a lot."
