Gary Manning departs role at Limerick FC

Limerick under-19s manager Gary Manning has announced that he has left the club with immediate effect. Manning has been with the Shannonsiders for a number of years and graduated from coaching several underage teams including the under-17 side.

At the beginning of 2019, Manning was rewarded for his loyalty and longevity by being appointed as Head of Youth Development at the club.

However, Manning stated that due to events in recent weeks, his position is ‘untenable.’

In a statement released on his own personal Twitter account, Manning said;

It is yet more negative press for Limerick FC following last week’s news that players have overwhelmingly voted in favour of strike action should they not be paid by this afternoon.

As of yet, it is unknown as to whether the playing staff have received promised wages and expenses for March and April. Limerick are due to face table toppers Cabinteely in a crucial Airtricity League match at the Markets Field on Friday night.

Manning’s resignation will do little to ease supporters fears regarding the uncertainty surrounding the club.
