Tim Clancy departs role as St Pat’s boss

St Patrick’s Athletic have confirmed that Tim Clancy has stepped down as boss after an 18-month stint in charge of the Saints.

Clancy’s side have struggled for consistency this season and currently lie 7th in the Premier Division table with 17 points on the board from 13 games played.

The Athletic have lost their last three games after going on a run of four successive wins that catapulted them up the table after an indifferent start.

But Monday’s 1-0 loss at home to Sligo Rovers appeared to be the final straw as the Saints confirmed their manager ‘resigned by mutual consent’.

A statement from the club read: “St Patrick's Athletic can confirm that Tim Clancy has resigned from his position as first-team manager by mutual consent.

“Club chairman Garrett Kelleher would like to thank Tim for his commitment to the club over the last 18 months.

“Tim would like to thank everyone at St Pat's for their support during his time as manager and wishes the club the best of luck in the future.”
