IN his short time at Notts County Kerry's brightest soccer star Brendan Moloney will have experienced three (probably four) different managers.
Since he arrived on loan from neighbouring giants Nottingham Forest this summer Moloney has been managed by Ian McPartland – the man who he perviously worked with at Forest and who was eager to sign him for this season – by his replacement Hans Backe (who resigned after last weekend's 2-1 loss to Accrington Stanley, which Moloney played in at right back) and now by temporary manager Dave Kevan (former assisant boss).
A crazy situation for any club, but for a club that's been going through a major overhaul in the wake of being bought out by Qadbak Investments earlier this summer its doubly so. They pumped money into the club hoping to get up the divisions as soon as possible, bringing Sven-Goran Eriksson in as director of football.
They've seen players come and go within weeks – Sol Campbell played one game at the club before quitting. And yet on the field they've done pretty well and Moloney has reportedly put in serveral impressive displays – so impressive that the club have made moves to buy the Beaufort man. To perform so well under difficult circumstances shows real class.
