City’s management stay for 2023

Cork City FC have decided to retain the current management group for the rest of the season.

Colin Healy quit as manager on 3 May following a 5-0 defeat to Bohemians. The current group led by Sporting Director Liam Buckley, Assistant Manager Richie Holland, Head of Academy Liam Kearney, First Team Coach Declan Coleman and Goalkeeping Coach Anthony Fennelly was then put in place.

They have overseen 4 wins and 4 losses from their 8 games in charge including wins over champions Shamrock Rovers and Bohemians leaving City third from bottom.

City had 3 wins and 3 draws from the 13 Premier League games that Colin Healy was in charge.

Cork City owner Dermot Usher said that everyone at the club has been “pleased with recent results and performances. It has been a real team effort with everyone pulling in the same direction, and we have been very happy with how it is going.

“We have an excellent management team, headed by Liam Buckley, and we are confident that this approach will continue to bear fruit for the club. We have therefore decided that the current management team will remain in place until the end of the season,” he added.

“We look forward now to Friday night’s game at home to Drogheda United and, hopefully, another big crowd at Turner’s Cross as we aim to keep our good form going.”
