Town Confirm Nash Exit
Friday, 14th May 2021 15:20

Town have confirmed the departure of long-serving coach Gerard Nash.

“Gerard has worked at every level here from the academy through to the U23s and first team,” Lee O’Neill, Town’s general manager of football operations, told the club site.

“He has played a significant role in the development of our young players in that time and on behalf of Ipswich Town, I want to thank him for his many years service to the club and wish him every success for the future.”

Nash, 34, had been in a role where he was working on analysis of the first-team’s opposition, while also monitoring the progress of players out on loan, while also having some involvement in coaching youngsters.

Until September last year, the Dubliner had been the U23s coach, having been in charge of the U18s from 2013 until 2016. From 2006 to 2012 he was assistant academy manager.

Nash became an academy coach after his fledgling playing career as a centre-half was ended in 2006 after he suffered cruciate knee ligament injuries, having made one senior sub appearance for the Blues in addition to spells on loan at Hartlepool and Southend. He had joined the Blues’ academy as a scholar in 2002.

Capped by the Republic of Ireland at U17 level, Nash has twice been linked with the manager’s job at hometown club St Patrick’s Athletic in recent years.
