The Sheriff fans that are currently mourning the loss of possibly the most successful Junior football manager ever, Alan Reilly, could be filled with joy and hope once their season is officially done.
The JSP believes a former Irish International, Premier League player and one of amateur footballs real success stories has applied for the vacant job.
Replacing a man that won an amazing 31 trophies, six out of a possible seven league titles as well as an amazing four FAI Junior Cups in seven years at the AUL club could prove daunting for most, but not former Birmingham City player Keith Fahey it seems.
The JSP believes Fahey has put his hat in the ring and is interested in dipping his toe into management with Sheriff.
The 16 time capped Irish International has good amateur previous . The talented Dubliner, who was a trainee at Arsenal and Aston Villa, used Bluebell United and the amateur game as a spring board back to pro football after he returned home from England back in 2003.
From the Red Cow, Fahey made the short trip to Richmond Park and St Patricks Athletic, a stint with Drogheda followed, but it was during his second stint with the Saints that he began to catch the eye again.
After some fine performances in Europe and a PFAI Player of the Year win Fahey moved to Alex McLeish’s Birmingham and eventually ended up playing Premier League football and for Ireland.
The player returned home in 2014 and retired after seasons with St Pats and Shamrock Rovers.
He worked on the Crumlin backroom team two seasons ago before resigning for Bluebell United last Summer.
Now the JSP has been lead to believe Fahey wants to move into management with Sheriff.
