Stourbridge manager Gary Hackett has been busy again, this time agreeing terms to bring in Danny O’Callaghan from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division rivals Sutton Coldfield.
O’Callaghan is an energetic, attack-minded midfielder who can also play the ‘number 10’ role in behind the main striker.
He progressed through the ranks into the first-team at Sutton Coldfield and played his part in the Royals winning promotion via the play-offs to the NPL Premier Division in 2015 before linking up with AFC Telford United that summer.

That move didn’t work out though with the Shropshire club undergoing a change of manager early in the season after a poor start.
He returned to Sutton Coldfield at the end of August 2015, initially on a dual registration basis.
A fans` favourite at Sutton Coldfield, he went on to captain the side last season before a serious injury sustained in January ended his season prematurely.
He made 133 appearances over his two spells at Coles Lane.
He certainly made his mark on the Glassboys last season, netting the only goal of the game in the Royals` league win at Amblecote in October 2016 and also notched one against Hacketts` side in the League Cup tie at Sutton Coldfield in December that ended 3-3.
