COLIN HEALY will take charge of Cork City for the remainder of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division season, following the departure of manager Neale Fenn.
Fenn and his assistant Joe Gamble have left the club by mutual consent, with a decision reached late on Wednesday night. City are currently bottom of the Premier Division, two points behind Finn Harps.
Fenn was appointed last August, replacing John Cotter, who had been interim manager in the wake of John Caulfield leaving City in May of 2019.
Coincidentally, Healy’s first game as caretaker manager will be away to Bohemians on Friday night, just as Cotter’s was after Caulfield left, and City will hope for a positive omen as that was a 1-0 win.
After the trip to Dalymount Park, champions Dundalk visit Turner’s Cross next Tuesday. Waterford (home), Sligo Rovers (away) and Derry City (home) are the remaining three fixtures for the Rebel Army.
Earlier this week, Fenn confirmed that Dáire O’Connor had left the club but the winger’s situation is not changed by this new development.
