MCCOURT TO RETURN TO DERRY CITY AS HEAD OF YOUTH ACADEMY
Sport Careers Agency client Paddy McCourt is set to return to his former club Derry City as the head of their youth academy.
In his new role McCourt will oversee the progress of a range of Derry's youth teams.
The former Northern Ireland and Celtic winger had a successful playing spell with the club from 2005 until 2008.
He will start his new role in mid-September after seeing out his contract and playing career with Finn Harps.
"I'm really happy to be coming back to Derry City and in particular to have the opportunity to oversee this new development programme"
"The club has identified an area where they feel more work is needed to secure the future of the younger players as they come through the ranks, and it is a challenge I am relishing."
