Derry City part company with Devine
Published: October 27, 2013

Derry City are looking for a new manager this evening with the announcement that they have parted ways with Declan Devine. In a statement on the club website, it said the decision had been taken by mutual consent.

 

Devine leaves the Candystripes after 21 months in charge which saw the former goalkeeper lead the club to FAI Cup success in 2012. In the league, Derry finished 5th in 2012 and 4th in the season just ended which, depending on the FAI Cup result, could see the club qualify for Europe.

The club's official statement reads:

 

Derry City and Declan Devine parted ways this evening by mutual consent. The following is the official statement from the club’s chairman Philip O’Doherty:

 

Derry City FC Board of Directors wish to announce that Declan Devine has parted company with the Club by mutual consent.

Yours sincerely,

 

Philip O’Doherty
