Wed, Dec 16 2020

Women’s National League side Shelbourne have confirmed the departure of Head Coach Dave Bell.

Bell steps down as the Shelbourne boss after guiding the club to two successful years at Tolka Park.

While at the Reds, Bell won the 2019 League Cup, and he helped guide the club to two successive second placed league finishes.

“Having spent the last two seasons with Shelbourne as the Women’s Head Coach/ Manager, my decision to step down from the position which was made together with the club was one of the most difficult ones I’ve had to make,” Bell said to Shels’ media team after leaving the club.

“I am of course disappointed finishing runners up two years in a row however I’ve been so happy with the way the girls performed and in the main the style of football we played which we received many compliments.

“But I feel that now is the right time for the club to go in a new direction.

“Coaching such lovely talented girls and working alongside some exceptional backroom staff will always be close to my heart.

“I hope the club will accept my most heartfelt thanks for allowing me the opportunity to have been Shelbourne FC Women’s Head Coach.”
