Noel King has informed the club that he will be stepping down as first-team manager with immediate effect due to medical reasons.

We would like to thank Noel for his time with the club and we wish him and his family all the best in the future.

Liam Burns will take charge of the team for the match with Shamrock Rovers on Friday night.

The process of recruiting a new manager will begin immediately.

The club will not be making any further comment at this time.
