Cork City Confirm Neale Fenn As New Head Coach

Cork City have confirmed Neale Fenn as the club's new head coach.

Fenn resigned as Longford Town manager on Saturday. He spent two years with the First Division side and departs with them in the playoff places. Cork say they agreed terms with Longford regarding the move.

The 42-year-old, who began his career with Spurs, played for Cork City between 2004 and 2006, scoring 27 goals in 84 appearances.

"I'm just excited, I can't wait to get going," Fenn told Rebel Army TV.

It's a club I hold dear to my heart and as soon as I heard there was interest in me, I was excited about it.

For me, it's the biggest club in the country with the best fans in the country. To have the opportunity to turn the fortunes around [is great]. This season has not been great.

Fenn has agreed a multi-year deal with Cork, who currently sit seventh in the Premier Division.

"I took a walk around Turner’s Cross and the memories came flooding back of the fantastic nights in front of the Shed End – winning trophies and those great European nights," added Fenn.

"I’ve met the backroom team, a lot of who I know from my playing and coaching career. We’re committed now to finishing the season as high as we can in the league. There’s a very strong group of players here. The spine of the team is Cork City through and through, you need that to be successful."
