Waterford terminate Marc Bircham’s contract

Waterford have terminated the contract of their manager Marc Bircham just three days before their promotion/relegation play-off against UCD.

Bircham tweeted this morning to say that he had been suspended for a week by the club after ‘a difference of opinion’ with the owner.

Waterford have now taken the decision to end Bircham’s term in the south east.

Having been appointed in May, the Englishman signed a two-year contract in August.

In a very brief statement on Twitter, Waterford said:

“Waterford FC have terminated the contract of Marc Bircham. The club will be making no further comment at this time.”

Bircham meanwhile has published his own statement on social media, saying:

“After a Brief TEXT conversation with the owner last night, and a difference of opinion on a couple of matters I have surprisingly been given a 1 week suspension meaning I will no longer be able to manage the team Friday night in the Big play off game!

“Anyone that knows me knows I’m a man of principles and will stick to them.
“That leaves me to say I have the upmost confidence in the Players and Staff to finish off this amazing journey with the win they so richly deserve after the mammoth effort and
professionalism they have applied.
“Lastly to the fans for the massive part they have played in the team’s turnaround please don’t underestimate the role you have played.
“Let’s finish off the great escape.
“Come on the blues
“Yours sincerely
“Marc Bircham”
