McCartney joins Rovers as Feeney finalises backroom staff

Jason McCartney has been appointed as coach of the Sligo Rovers women’s team.

McCartney will work alongside manager and former team-mate Steve Feeney as the duo take their first steps in senior management.

Both players lined for Ballinamallard for the majority of their playing career and now reunite.

He lined out for Rovers in the later 2000s before going on to become a stalwart at the Northern Irish side.

The Bit O’ Red are delighted to welcome Jason back to the club. He has already been part of training for the Rovers side ahead of the first Women’s National League season.

In further additions, Jacqui Mulligan has been appointed a coach.

Mulligan has a detailed background in sport including as an elite performer for the Sligo GAA team as captain.

Brendan Fitzsimons, who coaches at Summerhill College and formerly played for the club’s ‘A’ team, will be assistant coach and analyst and Ronan Cox has been named as equipment manager.  

The club welcomes all of the new staff members and are thankful for their support to the team at this vital time.
