Hartstown Huntstown FC have appointed a UEFA A license coach as their first team manager for next season.
The LSL Senior 1B side will be coached by Paul Doody next term.
The Intermediate side finished a respectable but not spectacular ninth in the LSL fourth tier last season and have changed the managerial set up moving forward.
Doody has coaching experience as part of successful St Kevins and St Paul Artane’s coaching teams and is working as a full time coach with the FAI at present.
The UEFA A license holder now takes over the Blanch based outfit.
Hartstown Huntstown released to following statement to confirm the appointment.
“Hartstown Huntstown FC are delighted to announce that Paul Doody will take charge of the our Senior Intermediate 1B Sunday Team with immediate effect.
Paul is a UEFA A license coach currently working full time with the FAI.
He is also assistant coach with FAI Junior International team for the last 3 years.
He has coached at all levels of the game and was part of the coaching staff that won Leinster Senior Cup with St. Kevin’s Boys and won the Nivea cup with St. Paul’s Artane.
We are delighted to welcome Paul & his back room team to the club and wish him every success in his new role!
We are also pleased to announce that long serving club trio Pat Smith, Declan Sherry & Paul O Keefe will take charge of our Saturday 1B side.
We’d like to thank Wayne Toal and his back room team and Dave Byrne and his team for their enormous contributions last season.
Pre-season Training for both squads starts Tuesday 10th July at 7.45pm.
We look forward to welcoming back all of our players from last season from the senior section and of course the new additions over the coming weeks.”
