Our Reserves Management Team of Simon Brown, Chris Loney & Gavin O’Neill have announced their intentions to step down from their roles at Planters Park at the end of the current season, in whatever capacity it ends in.
A few months ago they made the committee aware of their decision and all those involved with Dollingstown would like to place on record their appreciation of the tireless hard work and commitment all 3 have shown to bring back a very good, youthful Reserve Team back to Planters Park who where competing at the top of the Reserve Championship and into the later stages of the Wilmor Johnston Memorial Cup with the season possible going to be unfinished. Thank you for the professional manner in which they have worked with the committee and players on this issue, in giving time for a successor(s) to be found and introduced to the current team.
Simon, Chris, Gavin and their squad brought back the Wilmor Johnston Memorial Cup to Planters Park last season and where in a great position to challenge for more silverware this season, and may still do depending on the outcome of the MUFL competitions this season.
Best of luck to the 3 lads and whatever opportunity you take next, no doubt will be a success and whatever club this is with, they will be getting 3 top lads.
As Chairman of DFC I want to thank Simon, Chris and Gavin for their professionalism and commitment to DFC over the last 2 years .
They have faithfully coached the boys every Tuesday and Thursday night over the season and this reflected in the results achieved during this time.
It is with a heavy heart we have to say goodbye to the boys as they embark on new first team opportunities elsewhere but we fully understand there desire to improve there coaching abilities.
On behalf of everyone at DFC we would like to thank them and they know they are always welcomed back anytime to Planters Park.Club Chairman – Hubert Watson
