Former Wednesday midfielder Burton O’Brien has followed former team mate Lee Bullen and penned a three-year deal at Falkirk today.

O’Brien, known as BOB to Wednesdayites, was one of a number of players told they could leave Hillsborough at the end of last season, along with former skipper Bullen.

And now he’s linked up with Bully at Falkirk after spending almost three years in the famous blue and white stripes, making 76 league starts for the club and finding the back of the net six times.

O’Brien struggled to win the fans over during his first two years at the club under Paul Sturrock, the man who signed him, but he started to put in good performances under the guidance of Laws, where he enjoyed his best spell in the blue and white.

Vital Sheffield Wednesday wishes BOB the best of luck, and will be following Falkirk closely next season!
