Club thanks Brian Dorrian following FAI appointment

Sligo Rovers wish to send our gratitude to Brian Dorrian after his departure from the club this week to take up a role with the FAI as High Performance Director role for Donegal.

Brian has been a dedicated youth coach and a huge asset to the Bit O’ Red during two spells at the club.

At Under-19 level, he has coached, nurtured and mentored countless players who have gone onto play senior football with the club.  

He has played a role in the recruitment of players at youth level since 2017 and served as a coach at first-team level over the last five years.

In 2018 Brian became our first-team manager for a two-game period prior to the appointment of Liam Buckley as he led to club to a win on the final night of the season.

Brian’s commitment was exemplary given his commute from Killybegs for every session and match at varying levels of his involvement.

Last year the club won the Under-19 Shield under Brian’s management.

All at Sligo Rovers are very grateful for the role Brian has played in the development of the youth set-up at the Showgrounds.

He departs with the club very thankful for all of his hard work and dedication to the club, as well as being such a well-liked personality around The Showgrounds every day.

We wish him well in his new role at the FAI. An update on a new Under-19 manager will be issued shortly.
