Damien Duff signs new contract

Dublin, November 11th, 2023:  — Shelbourne FC is delighted to announce that Damien Duff has put pen to paper on a new contract extension with the club.

Duff took over at Tolka Park in 2021. He’s made an enormously positive contribution and his influence in the growth and development of the club on and off the field has been immeasurable.

This contract extension reaffirms the club’s commitment in Duff’s ambitious vision for the future. The club is confident that under his guidance, Shelbourne will continue to grow and once again become a competitive force in domestic competition.

In his first year at Tolka Park, Duff guided the newly promoted Reds to a 7th place finish and a first FAI Cup final appearance in over a decade.

During his second season, the Reds continued to grow and improve and secured their highest League of Ireland finish since 2006, ending the season in 4th spot, with a chance of playing in Europe depending on the result of tomorrow’s FAI Cup final.

Shelbourne FC is delighted that Duff’s backroom staff of Joey O’Brien, David McAllister, Paul Skinner, Mauro Martins and Mark Cornish have also also put pen to paper on new contracts with the club.

Damien Duff, Head Coach Shelbourne FC said: “Shelbourne FC, born in 1895 is a Dublin Institution. It is built on hard work, respect, humility and honesty. This can never be lost. See you in Tolka soon, UTFR”
