Neale Fenn has been named as the new manager of Longford Town and vowed to secure the club's return to the League of Ireland Premier Division.

After their relegation last season from the top flight last year, Fenn has a big job on his hands to revive a team that has struggled to find momentum this season and currently sit 14 points behind league leaders Waterford.

“I am delighted to have been chosen to be the next manager of Longford Town Football Club," declared former Ireland under-21 star Fenn.

"I cannot wait to get started, meet the players and to get my ideas across before our next home game against Cabinteely on Saturday.

"I am excited about the club’s ambitions and plans for the future. This club should be in the League Of Ireland Premier Division and it is my aim as manager to get us there.”

Neale was formerly assistant manager at Drogheda United and more recently at Leyton Orient, with his playing career including spells with Tottenham Hotspur, Peterborough, Waterford United, Cork City, Bohemians, Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers.
