CORK City legend John Caulfield has been appointed as manager of Galway United.

The former star striker was a league winner as a player and guided City to the double in 2017.

He departed Turner's Cross in 2019 after a disappointing start to that campaign and had been linked with a number of roles in the interim, including Waterford.

Caulfield joins Galway with a view to steering them back to the Premier Division. They'd had a difficult season in Division 1 in 2020 with just two wins from seven league games.

"Galway United are delighted to announce the appointment of John Caulfield as manager.

"Caulfield takes charge of #GUFC after a hugely successful spell managing Cork City, where he won the Premier Division title, two FAI Cups and three President Cups."

This summer he's been involved as GAA selector with St Mary's in West Cork, where he lives. They're due to play Kilmacabea in round three of the Carbery JAFC.
