Drogheda United are delighted to announce that manager Tim Clancy and assistant manager Kevin Doherty have both signed new two-year contracts with the club.
Clancy was named Drogheda United manager in December 2017 after spending the last 18 months of his playing career with Bray Wanderers. Doherty was named as Clancy’s assistant ahead of the 2018 season.
In September 2019, Clancy and Doherty signed a new deal with the club as Drogheda narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier Division in the play-off final against Finn Harps.
The 2020 season saw Drogheda promoted back to the top flight of Irish football, sealing the First Division title with a 2-0 win against Cabinteely on the final day of the season.
“Things are going really well this year, we’re hoping we can build on that next year. We’ve a young team, if we can keep all the lads we have and add a bit more to the squad, which we’re looking into next year, then there’ll be exciting times ahead.
“It’s the perfect place for myself to be at the moment, I love it here and I’m not looking to go anywhere. I advised them to get a deal sorted and it’ll keep me here for the next two seasons,” Clancy said.
Drogheda United chairman Conor Hoey also commented on the announcement, expressing his delight that Tim is staying with Drogheda for a further two years.
“Tim has proven himself to be the top young manager in the league. He’s going to go on to have a huge career in management, but in the meantime, we are delighted he’s staying with Drogheda, and I’m sure all the players will be delighted too,” Hoey said.
