Drogheda United have appointed 33-year-old Tim Clancy as their new manager with ex-Sligo boss Dave Robertson returning to the League of Ireland as Director of Football.

Clancy played with Bray Wanderers last season, but he will start his managerial career with the Drogs, who will seek to bounce back from their relegation to the First Division.

The defender spent the bulk of his playing career in Scotland with spells at Kilmarnock, Motherwell, Hibernian and St Johnstone.

Clancy came back to Ireland to join Shamrock Rovers and the Meathman then played for Sligo Rovers - where he played under Robertson - before joining Bray.

Englishman Robertson parted company with Sligo after their poor start to the 2017 campaign and the ex-Peterborough manager will now adapt to a new role
