Club Statement: Noel King

Shelbourne FC wish to announce that manager Noel King will leave the club at the end of the current season.

King spent three years in charge of Shels having been appointed in the winter of 2020. He ended a five year wait for top domestic honours, guiding the Reds to the Women’s National League title in his first season in 2021.

The following season the Reds recorded a domestic double as Shels won the league and the FAI Cup.

In a statement, Noel King expressed his gratitude and reflecting on his time with the club said:

“It has been a tremendous honour to manage Shelbourne FC. The dedication and passion of the girls, staff, and supporters have been unwavering. I am immensely proud of what we have accomplished together.”

Shelbourne FC CEO, Barry Mocke, praised Noel King’s contribution: “Noel King’s legacy at Shelbourne FC is a positive one. His knowledge and experience of the game, at the very highest level, provided us with a platform to push our Women’s National League team to the top of the game.
We are grateful for his contribution.”

The club will now begin the search for a successor. The excellent work in our academy is the foundation of future Shels’ successes and whoever assumes the role will be expected to build on this work to enhance and further develop the player pathway from the academy to the first team.

The club are confident it will be an exciting and attractive challenge to numerous potential candidates.
