KEARNEY TAKES OVER COLERAINE HOT SEAT

COLERAINE have confirmed the appointment of Oran Kearney as their new manager following the dismissal of David Platt.

Kearney, 32, takes over the reigns on a rolling 12-month contract after impressing at Ladbrokes.com Championship 1 title contenders Limavady United.

He will bring with him Trevor McKendry who also assisted him during his spell with the Roesiders.

Kearney's first game will be the local derby away to Ballymena United - one of his former clubs as a player - on Tuesday night.
