Rodney McAree

Manager of Coleraine FC

  • Date Joined: 25th June 2019
I began my footballing career at Dungannon Swifts Juniors in Northern Ireland, going on to represent Northern Ireland at Schoolboy level through to captaining the U18 Northern Ireland team. I signed for Liverpool as a 15 year old and spent 4 years at Liverpool before going on to play for Bristol City and Fulham before returning home to play for Glenavon and Dungannon Swifts in the Irish League.

I have always been very interested in coaching and have worked my way through my badges and was proudly awarded my UEFA Pro License Diploma in November 2018. I regard myself as a very competent coach both technically and tactically and I am very keen and determined to further develop my coaching and knowledge of the game.

My time as Head Coach at Dungannon Swifts FC proved very successful as they won their first ever season trophy during my reign when winning the League Cup. I’m extremely passionate about how i see the game being played and my coaching sessions and philosophy would reflect that in great detail providing the players and the audience with an enjoyable experience. I am a fully focused character who is reliable, honest and trustworthy and very ambitious to succeed.
