Cork City confirms appointment of first ever head of women’s football

Cork City have appointed a new head of Women’s Football – a first for the club.

Women’s boss Danny Murphy will take up the role, includes oversight of all women’s football at Cork City FC, including the first team and academy teams.

Danny is hoping to focus on the academy and bring talented young players through to the top level of the club and beyond.  “Megan Connolly and Denise O’Sullivan have shown young girls that they can have a really exciting future in soccer and being part of the women’s squad for the World Cup is inspiring lots of talented young players around Cork city and county to follow their dreams.  It’s important to get players involved at a young age and I am looking forward to working with them on their journey to becoming the possible stars of the future.”

Anthony O’Sullivan meanwhile has been appointed the club’s new commercial director.

Dermot Usher, owner of Cork City FC, has welcomed the two appointments.  “Danny has already made an impact on the women’s team and I am confident that this new role as Head of Women’s Football will bring hugely positive results both on and off the pitch.   I am delighted to bring Anthony to the club as he has a lot of experience in developing important relationships within the business community of Cork and I know that he will bring a great energy and enthusiasm to the club.”
