Maurice Farrell departs Cork Womens FC

Maurice Farrell has left as Cork Women's FC manager.

MAURICE Farrell has parted ways as manager of Cork Women’s FC with immediate effect.

The club announced the decision today after both the club and manager decided on Thursday night to go their separate ways for the upcoming year in the Bus Eireann National Women’s League.

The Leesiders endured a difficult 2013/14 season with performances on the field dipping significantly and a high turnover of players. Under these difficult circumstances, the club and manager saw out the season before parting ways.

A club statement read: 'Cork Women’s FC would like to thank Maurice Farrell for his commitment to its Women’s National League team after he stepped down as club manager with immediate effect following the conclusion of the 2013/14 season.

'The club is extremely grateful to Maurice for all he has done for it over the last two years and wishes him the very best for the future. Cork Women's FC would also like to thank assistant manager Derek O'Gorman and coach Stephen O'Mahony, who have also left the club for their work during their time with the WNL team.'

Club secretary Patrick Healy expressed his appreciation to the outgoing manager and his staff after he informed the board of his decision to step down.

‘We would like to thank Maurice, Derek and Stephen for their commitment over the last two seasons as they oversaw the club through a difficult period. Maurice is a good young coach and we wish him the best in his future ventures,’ Healy said.

The club hopes to make an announcement on a new manager in the coming weeks.
