Waterford have confirmed the departure of their First Team Manager Alan Reynolds.

With the League still halted due to the ongoing pandemic and there still being no date set by the FAI for the resumption of league play, Reynolds departs the club having first assumed charge in 2017.

In that first year the Blues were promoted to the top flight of Irish football before they would go on to secure a European spot the following season. However, they would be refused permission to compete with Europe’s finest after Uefa ruled they did not meet the criteria due to the renaming process the club had been forced into.

So far this season Reynolds had guided Waterford to wins over St Patrick's Athletic and Derry City before the curtain was pulled on the season in mid-March.

In a statement Wateford said they “completely understand his decision” given “the difficult position” the League of Ireland finds itself in.

The statement then concluded: “Waterford FC would like to thank Alan for all his hard work over the years and establishing the club as a strong contender in the League of Ireland.

“We wish him and his family all the very best and in what he decides to do in the future.

“Alan and his family will always be welcome at the RSC.”

There is much speculation as to where Reynolds may head to next with jobs in the underage international setups as well as with other League of Ireland sides possible.
