Weight70 kg
Height1.75 m
PositionMidfielder

Donnelly missed almost the whole of the 2000-01 campaign with persistent hamstring trouble but eventually returned to first-team action last April when he came off the subs' bench to score a cracking winner against Barnsley. He also appeared as a substitute in the last two games of the season and he will be hoping he has finally put his long-standing injury problems behind him. Donnelly can play as an attacking midfield player or as a striker and in the past has shown a good goals-per-game record.

Donnelly joined St Johnstone in August 2003 in a one-year deal.
