PETER ALLEN LEAVES DERGVIEW

Peter Allen has resigned as manager of Bluefin Sport Championship side Dergview following Saturday's defeat.

Despite a positive start to the campaign which included a memorable BetMcLean League Cup victory over Glenavon, the County Tyrone side have lost their last seven league games in succession.

Taking to Twitter to thank the club, Allen stated; “I would like to thank everyone at Dergview for the chance to manage their great club.”

“I enjoyed every minute of it and will take away nothing but great memories. To every one of the players use (sic) were brilliant for me and I couldn’t ask any more.”

Allen took the reigns at Darragh Park in January 2018 from Richard Clarke and guided the club to Championship safety last season via their playoff victory against Queen’s University.

Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at home to Loughgall left Dergview just a point above the relegation playoff places ahead of Limavady United and Ballinamallard United.
