Limerick step up search for new manager

Ahead of their rescheduled fixture against Derry tomorrow evening, Limerick FC are getting closer to appointing a manager on a full-time basis. Interim manager, Willie Boland has performed admirably in his role, securing two wins and a draw from four outings.

Limerick FC have stopped accepting applications for the job and look to be preparing for the interview stage. Boland who is enjoying the role is surely one of the leading contenders for the position. However, if he is unsuccessful he has offered advice to potential managers.

“I would tell him he’s got a good group of players there. Players that are capable of putting in some very good performances. There’s players that can do well in this league – pushing towards a top four position and I’d say that he’s in good hands. Like any squad, you’d like an extra couple of players, but any manager would say that. With us, our players have done really well.”

Yet Boland does not seem ready to part with the role,

“I’m learning everything about management. It’s not easy – of course it’s not. I’m enjoying the experience because, as an ex-footballer myself, you take the good with the bad. You try and react the same way for both. Obviously you want to learn from instances where things don’t go your way, but you shouldn’t get carried away when they do either.”

Another win tomorrow in Buncrana would go a long way in securing the job for Boland as Limerick look to push further up the SSE Airtricity Premier Division against Derry tomorrow at 7.45pm.
