Kelly on learning curve

June 2, 2004

Athlone Town player/manager Stephen Kelly saw the harsh reality of his new job come to light when Cobh Ramblers inflicted a 5-0 defeat on the Midlanders last weekend but has vowed to learn from the experience.

Kelly took over the reigns of manager from Aaron Callaghan who resigned early last week and witnessed his side suffer one of their heaviest defeats in years in his first game in charge.
