Career My Journey with Rathfriland Rangers FC


Recommended Posts


1) Why Rathfriland Rangers FC are a good choice?

Rathfriland Rangers FC might not be as well-known as some of the bigger clubs, but they have a rich history and a passionate fan base. I was drawn to the club because of its potential for growth and the opportunity to make a real impact on the local football scene. The challenge of taking a small, struggling team and turning them into champions was too good to pass up.

2) Stadium & Training

The club's stadium and training facilities are in dire need of improvement. The stadium, although small, has character, but the facilities are outdated and in poor condition. However, I saw this as an opportunity to build something from the ground up and create a true home for the team.


3) Staff Members, Training & Finances

When I arrived, the club had only one coach and one physio, and there were no scouts. With limited resources, I had to delegate training to the assistant manager and make the most of what we had. Finances were tight due to a full squad rebuild, but I was determined to make it work.


4) Squad Changes

The squad needed a complete overhaul due to the lack of quality in the original players. I scouted extensively and brought in fresh talent, focusing on young, hungry players with potential. It was a risk, but I believed in their ability to grow and develop.


5) Tactic Used

Inspired by FC Barcelona's 2010/2011 season, I replicated their famous "tiki-taka" style using a 4-1-2-3 formation with three pressing forwards upfront. I believed this tactic would suit the team's strengths and help us dominate possession and control the game.


6) The Results

Our hard work paid off as we won the NIFL Premier Intermediate, gaining promotion to a higher division. However, our journey in the Irish Cup was short-lived, as we were knocked out in the first round. In the NIFL Cup, we managed to reach the third round, but unfortunately fell short. Despite the setbacks, I was proud of the team's progress and excited for what the future holds.
