Longford Town Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Alan Mathews as manager.
Alan has been appointed after a difficult selection process due to the high calibre of all the candidates.
This will be his second stint at The City Calling Stadium after his successes between 2002 and 2007 which saw Longford Town reach three FAI Cup Finals and two League Cup Finals winning the FAI Cup in 2003 and doing the double in 2004.
On his appointment Alan said:
"I am delighted to be back at the club and am very grateful to the Chairman Jim Hanley and the committee for the opportunity. I look forward to working with the players and staff. There is still a lot of football to be played between now and the end of the season and I can assure the fans that we will do everything possible to retain our Premier Division status in the SSE Airtricity League".
Gary Cronin, the Caretaker Manager, will remain in charge for Saturday's FAI Irish Daily Mail Cup match against Cork City at 7.30pm at The City Calling Stadium.
