Galway United have announced the departure of Head Coach Lisa Fallon as she leaves the Tribesmen to take up a role with FIFA.

Fallon is set to join FIFA’s High Performance department in their technical division after spending the previous season with Galway United.

“I have loved every minute of my time working for this football club and know there is huge passion, drive and will to bring Galway United back to the Premier Division.,” Fallon said, speaking to the club’s media team.

“We’re very disappointed that we didn’t achieve that goal this season, despite finishing second, but so much great work has been done by so many people this year and I have no doubt the club has everything it needs to get back to where it belongs.

“I’m really grateful to John (Caulfield) and the Board for the opportunity to be head coach at this great club and also to all of the management team and the players who have been an absolute pleasure to work with this season,” she added.

“As for the supporters, they really are a different class. From the moment we were able to have them back in Eamonn Deacy Park, they made such a difference.

“The noise, the passion, the energy they bring is absolutely brilliant and the atmosphere for the last home game will be something that will live long in my memory.”

Fallon has extensive experience in football including her time at Galway, with the coach having held positions at Chelsea, Cork City and the Northern Ireland men’s national team.
