Bray Wanderers FC have accepted Harry Kenny’s resignation as Head Coach effective end of this season.
Harry’s statement is attached.
Harry came to Bray Wanderers FC as Assistant Head Coach on July 7th 2015. That season is particularly memorable in that we reached the semi-final of the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup going down narrowly to Cork City FC.
In 2016 Harry took over as acting Head Coach on April 21st. He subsequently agreed to take on the role of Head Coach on June 14th. He went on to lead the Club in a run of results propelling us from the bottom of the table to the top half. Indeed he was nominated for Manager of the year and he qualified us for the IRN-BRU cup.
He continued the good run into this season and has us sitting in the top half of the League of Ireland table. This run will always be remembered by our supporters.
His efforts were derailed by events outside his control – the financial issues of July which were subsequently settled.
We are disappointed that a Coach who has achieved so much for the Club has to resign but we are very conscious of the circumstances and conditions under which he has had to make this decision.
He has brought great honour and success to our Club and has been the model Coach since his appointment. He has worked closely with our Junior Partners – St Josephs Boys Club
And he has portrayed the Club in the best manners and traditions of sport – always available to the media and always courteous to our fans.
Harry will always be welcome here and we will always remember the new impetus he brought to our Club.
We thank him and wish him and his family every success in the future.
