Bluefin Sport Premier Intermediate League club Bangor have appointed Lee Feeney as their new manager.
Having enjoyed a successful spell as Banbridge Rangers manager followed by a stint as assistant manager to cousin Warren Feeney at Ards – Lee takes his first steps as a manager in the Irish League with his appointment at the Bangor Fuels Arena.
Feeney told the official Bangor website; "I’m very proud to get the job at Bangor and I’m looking forward to the difficult challenge ahead.
“My first objective is to get the club promoted back to the Championship. But I’m distinctly aware that the Premier Intermediate League is tough and the team will need to fight for every point in order to make promotion a reality.
"I would like to thank the board for their belief in me and I’m highly motivated to ensure we all succeed at Bangor."
A former player with the club, Feeney was once billed as one of the most exciting prospects in Northern Ireland following a high profile transfer from Linfield to Rangers in 1998. The mercurial forward player also enjoyed spells at Ards, Newry City and Shamrock Rovers following his return from Scotland.
The move comes to fill the vacancy left by Hugh Sinclair who departed the cub in March having led the Seasiders back into the NI Football League after winning the Ballymena & Provincinal Intermediate League during the 2018/2019 season.
Bangor were fourth in the Premier Intermediate League table prior to the suspension of football in March.
