Stephen Henderson unveiled as Cobh Wanderers boss

Munster Senior League outfit Cobh Wanderers have unveiled the appointment of Stephen Henderson as the club's new first-team boss

Henderson was most recently in charge of First Division strugglers Longford Town. 

But after parting ways with the Red and Black in April, the former Cobh Ramblers chief has joined forces with Munster Senior League side Cobh Wanderers. 

The Dubliner was a former player with Wanderers during his own playing days as a goalkeeper. 

But the First Division winning boss returns to the club ahead of their FAI Cup second round tie against Sligo Rovers next month.

“Cobh Wanderers would like to officially welcome Stephen Henderson back to the club," a club statement read.

"He once wore the No.1 jersey with distinction, as our new senior manager along with his backroom team of Darragh Burke, Ian Ryan, Timmy O’ Shea and John Meade.

"Stephen brings a wealth of experience of management at League of Ireland level while his coaching staff include names synonymous with Wanderers; being former players and coaching staff at our club.

“We wish the new management team and all the players the very best of success into the future. The team will start this new era with a big game away to Sligo in the senior men’s FAI Cup second round in mid-July.”
