Nash Linked With Manager's Job at St Patrick's Athletic
Saturday, 13th Oct 2018 20:55
Blues U23s coach Gerard Nash is reportedly a candidate for the vacant manager’s job at St Patrick’s Athletic back in his native Dublin.
According to The Irish Sun, Nash, 32, is one of six candidates to have spoken to the League of Ireland Premier League club, who are managerless following the departure of Liam Buckley.
Former Ireland international Kenny Cunningham, ex-Cork City and Drogheda United boss Paul Doolin and Harry Kenny, who had a spell as St Pat's assistant manager, are said to be among the other contenders for the role.
Nash, whose U23s side are currently top of the Professional Development League Two South table, has been in his current job at Town since 2016 having previously been in charge of the U18s.
The former central defender joined the Blues as a 15-year-old but saw his playing career end at 19 after only one sub appearance for Town and a handful of games on loan at Hartlepool and Southend following a succession of serious knee injuries.
He subsequently joined the coaching staff at Playford Road and has progressed through the ranks.

Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.
By Any Means Unnecessary by DazC
If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
