Ballymun United will start life as a Senior Sunday side with a new manager at the helm.
Not long after they secured promotion to the top table the Northside outfit have confirmed their promotion winning manager has stepped down.
Having lead the former AUL side to promotion via goal difference over Glenville Joey Graydon resigned from his position as first team manager.
Graydon was in charge for two seasons and lead the side to two promotions.
The experienced coach had been in the Killester hot seat for well over a decade before stepping down at the end of the 2014/15 season and is one of the most decorated managers in the game.
He famously guided Killester to the 2006/07 FAI Junior Cup final where they beat St John Bosco and also led his side to the final the following year where they lost to Carrick United.
After winning every honour in the junior game with Killester in the AUL, the club made the move to the LSL.
There, his side moved up the divisions year on year right to the top tier of Intermediate football. Now having lead Ballymun to the same promised land Graydon has stepped down.
Ballymun United confirmed the move on social media today,
A statement read:
Joey Graydon has resigned from his position as first team manager. It is a huge loss to the club. One of the main reasons we we’re attracted to Joey as a manager was his great desire and determination to improve and develop the club, he has achieved everything he set out to achieve ie getting the club to the top of Intermediate football. His attitude and consistency over his period of time with us was at the highest level of the amateur game. Joey along with his management team (Rory and Eddie) were magnificent in their approach. The club can’t thank him enough and we wish him well in his retirement, a friend for life he joins the long list of great managers at the club.
