    Trio among Dundalk candidates

    Former Athlone Town and Dublin City manager John Gill, ex-Drogheda United boss Harry McCue and St Patrick’s Athletic coach Liam O’Brien are reportedly on the shortlist for the vacant Dundalk manager’s job.

    Dundalk are on the look-out for a new team boss after the resignation of Jim Gannon two weeks ago.

    Gill, who parted company with Athlone at the weekend, former Republic of Ireland international O’Brien – who has also had spells as coach at Bohemians and Shamrock Rovers – and McCue, out of senior management since his dismissal from Drogheda two years ago, are the two names most closely linked with the job.

    Gannon’s 18-month reign at the border town club coincided with one of the most turbulent periods of their history.

    Financial concerns contributed to delays in implementing a new synthetic playing surface at Oriel Park, with the result that the once-great Lilywhites were forced to play their home games outside the town for most of the 2005 campaign.

    Former Shelbourne favourite Gannon stepped down from his position to take up a coaching role at Stockport County, where he spent a decade as a player.

    The club also saw Chief Executive Officer Sean Connolly and vice-chairman Tom Baldwin step down from their positions after a disagreement over funding for 2006.
