FEENEY THE NEW MAN FOR COUNTY
FORMER Northern Ireland forward Warren Feeney has become Newport County’s fifth manager inside a year following the departure of John Sheridan to Oldham Athletic this week.
Feeney had been working as assistant manager to Sheridan, who was in charge of the Exiles for 17 games.
Since Justin Edinburgh left Newport in February, Jimmy Dack and Terry Butcher have also been through the revolving door at Rodney Parade.
But 34-year-old Feeney did not have to think twice before accepting the role.“It was an easy choice for me,” he said. “It’s a dream that it has happened.
“I want to hit the ground running and get results.This is a great area and a decent club.”
Feeney’s previous managerial job was with Northern Irish club Linfield, who were sitting two points clear at the top of the Irish Premiership when he resigned in order to join Newport in October.
And Exiles director Gavin Foxall has faith.
“It was an easy decision for us as a board of directors,” he said.
