David Odumosu (born March 23 2001) is an Irish professional footballer who currently play as a goalkeeper for League of Ireland Premier Division club St. Patrick Athletic.

Early life

Odumosu was born in Dundalk to Nigerian Parents.[1]

Club career


Odumosu played with local sides Glenmuir United[1] and Bay United[2]. Originally playing as an outfielder[3], Odumosu transitioned to a goalkeeper before eventually signing for Malahide United[3]. While at Malahide, Odumosu played alongside Conor Grant and Oisin McEnteen.[3] Odumosu trialed in England with West Ham and Everton before signing for his hometown Dundalk as a youth player.[3] Here he played at U17 and U19 level.

Drogheda United

2020 Season

Having never made an appearance for Dundalk's senior side, Odumosu made the switch to League of Ireland First Division side Drogheda United under Tim Clancy for the 2020 season. Odumosu would go on to play all 18 matches for Drogheda that season as they went on to be crowned Champions, keeping 6 clean sheets.[4] Odumosu then went on to be named Drogheda Fan’s Young Player of the Season while also being shortlisted for the SSE Airtricity/Soccer Writers Ireland Goalkeeper of the Year alongside Alan Mannus (Shamrock Rovers) and Ed McGinty (Sligo Rovers).[4]

2021 Season

Having spent a month on trial with Watford, Odumosu would resign with Drogheda for the following 2021 season in the Premier Division[4]. Odumosu would make 31 appearances that season keeping 7 clean sheets as Drogheda finished 7th.[5]

St. Patricks Athletic

2022 Season

After trialing with Bolton Wanderers,[6] Odumosu would join St. Patricks Athletic for the 2022 season alongside the then Drogheda Manager Tim Clancy. Odumosu was signed as back up to Joseph Anang, who had been signed on loan from West Ham.[7] Upon Anang returning to West Ham that summer, Odumosu would suffer an ankle injury leading to Clancy signing Danny Rogers.[8] Rogers would then end up being favored by Clancy as he started all but the last two matches for St. Patricks Athletic for the remainder of the season.[7]


Odumosu extended his contract with St. Patricks Athletic for the 2023 season.

International career

Odumosu made his first international appearance under Andy Reid at under 18 level against Scotland U18. Odumosu would also end up being called up at under 21 level without ever making it off the bench. Odumosu also represented the Republic of Ireland School Selects team.[9] Odumosu has expressed interest in representing the Nigeria under 23 squad.[1]

Personal life

Briefly during his time at Drogheda United, Odumosu worked part time as a Construction worker in Dublin.[3]
