Blues looking for new manager

GLENAVON are looking for a new manager after Marty Quinn stepped down at the weekend.

After what he described as open, honest and frank discussions with the Chairman Adrian Teer, he has decided to quit “in the best interests of both parties.”

He said: “Things haven’t worked out as I would have wished and I believe it’s the best thing for the Club if I step down. I regret that I haven’t been able to move the Club on from the position it was in when I took over. Glenavon is a smashing club and everything is run with the utmost professionalism and enthusiasm by the Board and the other dedicated folk who work away in the background. Glenavon FC deserves to be in a better position than where it is at the moment.”

Mr Teer said: “We would like to thank him for his wholehearted commitment to the Club and for his professionalism and for acting as an excellent ambassador for Glenavon FC throughout his time in charge.

“The Club now awaits declarations from interested and suitably qualified applicants for the position of Manager/Head Coach of Glenavon FC. Whilst we would like to make an early appointment we will not be in a rush to do so.”

Meanwhild Pat McAllister has agreed to act as interim manager of Glenavon.
