McDonnell to stay at Shels

RELEGATED SIDE Shelbourne have received a boost ahead of their First Division campaign next season as manager John McDonnell has decided to stay on at Tolka Park.

McDonnell only took over as Reds boss midway through the season and while there was an initial lift in form which saw Shels move off the bottom of the table, a dreadful run of one point from their last seven games meant they finished bottom and were automatically relegated.
