Keane: McParland Here For The Season
Tuesday, 21st Sep 2010 15:02
Boss Roy Keane has confirmed that coach Ian McParland will stay with the club until the end of the season. McParland, universally known as Charlie, left the club in the summer for personal reasons but returned after new coach Gary Ablett was taken ill.
Keane says that McParland, who has been on the bench since the opening day win at Middlesbrough, will remain with the club for the rest of the season while Ablett is treated for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
“Charlie’s here and Gary’s still recovering and we’re getting on with it. Charlie will be here for the rest of the season," he said.
“The priority for Gary is to get well and we’re all supporting him in that. I speak to him regularly.”

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan

Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
