Cork City FC can confirm that Sarah Healy has stepped down as manager of the club’s Women’s Under 17 side.
Commenting on her decision, Sarah said: “I have had a wonderful time at Cork City and have really enjoyed working alongside some fantastic players, coaches and volunteers, both with the academy and then with the Under 17s. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be manager of the team for the last three season however the time is right for me now to move on to another challenge. I am leaving with wonderful memories and a fantastic relationship with the club, and I will continue to watch the progress of the players I have coached, and the club as a whole, with great interest. I wish everyone involved continued success.”
Speaking of the news, City Chairman Declan Carey said: “We cannot thank Sarah enough for the tremendous job she has done at the club. Winning the league last year and reaching a cup final this year were both tremendous achievements, and that is without mentioning the numerous players who have progressed under her, both during her time at the academy and then with the Under 17s. All of that is a testament to her qualities as both a coach and a person, and we would like to wish her the very best of luck for the future.”
The club will make a further announcement in the near future regarding the management of the Women’s Under 17 side for 2022.
