Shamrock Rovers part ways with manager Pat Fenlon

by Back Page Football

Shamrock Rovers are on the lookout for a new manager following the decision to parts ways with Pat Fenlon after three seasons.

Fenlon was appointed to the role back in August 2014 having previously had spells in charge of Shelbourne, Derry City, Bohemians and Scottish side Hibernian.

The 47-year-old’s departure comes just days after Rovers suffered a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Finland’s RoPS Rovaniemi in the first leg of their Europa League tie.

Rovers fans have recently expressed their discontent over the brand of football being played by their team, and they currently sits in fourth place in the SSE Aitricity League Premier Division.

With a European exit on the cards and Rovers 14 points behind league leaders Dundalk, the decision was made to move on from Fenlon.

Fenlon, who enjoyed an illustrious League of Ireland playing career, has won the Premier Division title five times as a manager – three times with Shelbourne and twice with Bohemians.
