CSU senior football manager John McGovern has been handed the keys to the club’s football department.
McGovern replaces former coach Tim Wilson who has stepped down after the CSU side finished fifth last season.
He replaces Paul Murray who was named manager in February, the same month McGovern became head coach.
The move was confirmed by CSU president Tom Fenton, who said the club was ready to move on from Murray.
“He has left, and it’s very difficult to replace him,” Fenton said.
We have a young coach in our club, and I’ve known John Mcgary for 25 or 30 years. “
He’s been in the game for 25 years, he knows football.”
We have a young coach in our club, and I’ve known John Mcgary for 25 or 30 years.
I think he’s the right man for the job.
“Csu has got a good squad, and we’re in a good position with our young players.”
McGary took over the Csu job in January.
He replaces Joe Tovey who was sacked in February after CSU finished fourth last season and won only three games in nine seasons.
Csu’s record under McGary is a record of 19-6-1.
Murray was sacked on May 4, 2018, but he was named coach on August 25, 2019, having been a player for nine seasons, including five with the Cs.
After being named manager for the first time in September 2020, he was sacked two weeks later.
His successor, Toveo, took over from McGary on September 22, 2021.
