Academy Management Teams Confirmed for 2024!

Cork City FC is delighted to confirm management teams for our Men’s Academy sides for the 2024 season.

Former player Liam Kearney will once again continue in his role as Head of Academy and is pleased with the management structure that has been put in place for the year ahead.

“I am delighted to continue in my role as Head of Academy. It is a huge honour and privilege for me to be in the role and it is something I don’t take lightly. We have seen huge success over the last number of seasons with numerous players securing moves to UK and European clubs, as well as several of our players getting International recognition. But above all, it is very clear that a pathway exists to our 1st team and that is there for everyone to see this season."

"I am very happy with the management teams that we have assembled for the year ahead. I would like to welcome all our new staff members to the club and hope they enjoy their first year working with our fantastic young players."

"I am also particularly happy to see us continue to make strides in the areas of Strength & Conditioning and Video Analysis, which we feel are two very important areas in the development of our young players. It is great to have Damien Coleman and Paul O’Donovan overseeing these areas."

"This year, I have also targeted three key areas in the Academy where I think additional focus will help our players. Paul Kiernan will head up Academy goalkeeping, Daniel Coakley will oversee Health and Nutrition, while Alex O’ Brien takes over as Head of Social Media."

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our management teams the very best of luck for the season ahead and I very much look forward to working with all of them closely.”
