Mark Quigley has been confirmed as the man that replaces The Man.
Quigley has been confirmed as the new Sheriff YC boss and takes on the challenge of replacing one of the greatest junior managers of all time.
Alan Reilly had a sensational seven year stint at the Inner City club winning an amazing 31 trophies, including six out of a possible seven league titles as well as an amazing four FAI Junior Cups.
The manager who was assisted by Chris Giles departed the club over the Summer and has taken the reigns at Senior Sunday side Ballymun United.
His departure saw Sheriff start a search for a replacement and after reviewing a host of applicants the committee elected to appoint Quigley as their manager for the 2018/19 season.
Quigley has a close association with the club having played underage near the Docks and wearing the hoops for the first team at certain stages last term.
At just 32 the former St Patricks Athletic and Sligo striker will prove one of the youngest managers in the amateur football next term, but the former Milwall youth does bring experience to the table and should be able to utilize good connections to add to a strong squad.
Sheriff confirmed the appointment on social media.
“We’re excited to announce Mark Quigley as our Premier A first team manager for the 2018/19 season.
Mark has been involved with Sheriff throughout his career, having begun his schoolboy football at the club and last season playing with our senior team. He comes to the role with a serious pedigree having played with Millwall and is a former League of Ireland winner with Sligo and player of the year.
We’re excited to have Mark and his management team onboard and look forward to a new chapter in the clubs history.
Preseason training and dates to be announced.”
