Stephen Dooley





Stephen Dooley is a product of Northern Irish club Coleraine's academy. After progressing to senior level, Stephen made 54 league appearances for his hometown club - scoring 5 League goals - before spending time in the US studying and playing college football.

Following three years in the US, Stephen signed for Irish Premier League club Derry City - and after 29 league appearances for them, he was signed by title contenders Cork City. In the 2016 season, Stephen became a vital part of Cork's title challenge, starting 24 times and scoring 5 goals - including the wonder-strike shown below against the eventual League winners Dundalk.

In the 2017 season, Stephen's Cork City career would excel further; he picked up the League and Cup double, appearing 27 times and scoring 4 goals in the Irish Premier League.

At the beginning of the 2018 season, Stephen chose to return to where it all began - signing once more for his hometown club Coleraine - albeit on a short-term contract. An enjoyable and successful spell for Coleraine then allowed for what was Stephen's dream move - an opportunity to ply his trade in the English Football League. On 31 May 2018, Stephen became the latest Full Contact Ireland client to complete a move to the UK, signing a two year contract at League One club Rochdale.
