Orange County SC announced over the weekend the signing of midfielder Aodhan Quinn for the 2018 season. Quinn, 25, is a San Diego native who joins from FC Cincinnati.
“I’m very excited to have Aodhan join Orange County SC. I’ve personally known him since he was a little boy and have been really impressed with the man he has become.

He’s not only a talented player but hardworking and disciplined which will continue to be the foundation of our team,” said Orange County SC head coach Braeden Cloutier in a statement.
