Born in Carlisle, Seamus O'Connell played for Sligo Rovers in Ireland before signing for Queen's Park in 1950. After scoring 29 goals in 79 appearances, O'Connell moved onto Middlesborough but soon moved onto Bishop Auckland. In the days of the maximum wage he was content to play as an amateur wherever he went, with his next port of call Chelsea, where he scored a hat trick on his debut and scored seven goals in ten appearances as Chelsea won the title in 1954. With a handful of appearances for Carlisle, he returned to Bishop Auckland where he won the Amateur FA Cup in 1955 and 1956, and repeated this with nearby Crook Town in 1958.

Along with his Amateur FA Cup wins, O'Connell also won four England Amateur caps.
