Date of birth
The versatile Northern Ireland Under-21 international signed for Pools in August 2016 following a successful pre-season trial.
Born in Dungannon, the young defender had spent the previous four seasons with Fulham and Craig Hignett was quick to make his move once he was released.
Comfortable in the centre of defence or at right-back, Donnelly also showed the ability to play in midfield during some of Pools’ pre-season friendly action.
After earning a deal, Donnelly quickly showed fans what he was capable of by performing solidly in a number of positions and displaying a real determination and fight.
