Good to get back to talk­ing about foot­ball

The Argus - - OPINION -

IT has been a chal­leng­ing close sea­son up in Oriel Park, far more so than any­one ever could have en­vis­aged when the team sealed their sec­ond league and cup dou­ble in four sea­sons.

The de­par­ture of Stephen Kenny, the an­nounce­ment that Fyffes would not be spon­sor­ing the team and the time lapse be­fore Stephen Kenny’s suc­ces­sor was an­nounced.

How­ever in the last week, de­spite the shock news that Mal Bran­ni­gan was de­part­ing as Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, there has been much more pos­i­tive news with the an­nounce­ment of a man­age­rial team led by Vinny Perth and the u-turn that Fyffes will in­deed spon­sor the Li­ly­whites for the next two sea­sons.

Last Sat­ur­day the play­ers re­turned for pre-sea­son train­ing in their newly ap­pointed gym and sud­denly ev­ery­one is look­ing for­ward to the ac­tion on the field and the sea­son ahead.
