Verona FC have announced Willie Henry as the new manager of their LSL Senior 1 B side.
Henry, a former player with Kilmore Celtic and Killester Utd – where at the latter he won two AUL Premier A and Nivea Cup winners medals along with a host of other trophies.
Henry returned to Kilmore as player coach alongside Sam Morris and ushered in a hugely successful resurgence of that club winning 7 trophies across three teams and winning AUL Club of the Year in 2016. Henry hung up his playing boots in 2017 after a cruciate ligament injury.
Morris will also come into Verona as Henry’s assistant as they look to arrest a slide down the LSL Senior divisions for the West Dublin side.
Henry had been announced as assistant manager at Kilbarrack Utd last week but the lure of the primary position in charge of Verona proved too hard to refuse for Henry.
