They are currently in the process of replacing one of the most successful amateur coaches of all time after Alan Reilly called time on his Sheriff career and will now have to start the search for a second team manager.
Johnny Reilly has stepped down as manager of the successful second string or the Premier B team as the are more commonly known.
Reilly coached at underage level before taking over the second string were he won two Premier B titles, the first in 2015 the second in 2018, which came on the back of the unbeaten season.
The committee paid a big tribute to all he has done at the club in the following statement:
The club would like to announce our Prem B manager Johnny Reilly has stepped down from his role at the club.
Johnny has done incredible work in his time at the club from working with our underage teams to developing our younger players and bringing them into a competitive senior environment. He has been involved in SYC for the last 30 years and holds a very special place in the clubs heart.
He has achieved huge success with our Premier B having won the AUL Premier B in 2015 and 2018 winning the league unbeaten. This is also added to his remarkable work at schoolboy level. He has done an unbelievable job in nurturing senior football within our club.
We’re sad to see him go but no doubt he’ll be successful in his new challenge and we look forward to celebrating with him at the end of season awards.
On behalf of the committee we want to thank Johnny for his dedication and passion he brought to the role.
We’ll now look to find a replacement for our Premier B side over the coming weeks and hope to make an announcement soon.
Yours in sport,
