Larne Football Club is pleased to announce that Gary Hood has been appointed as Manager of Larne Ladies Olympic.
Daniel Carlisle left the club at the end of the last women’s season due to work commitments having guided the Olympic side to third place in Division 4 and to the Division 4 Cup Final in the team’s first ever season.
Gary Hood was William Noble’s assistant with the Larne Ladies first team for the Inver Women’s successful North 2 title winning campaign in 2018, and their promotion from Division 2 last season.
Hood stood down from his assistant managerial role with Larne Ladies to take on coaching positions with the under 18s and under 16 girls. When the Olympic Manager’s job became available, the opportunity proved to be too tempting to turn down. He will retain his current roles elsewhere in the club.
Larne Ladies Olympic is the first step into adult football and the new Olympic manager will be well placed to help players progress from underage football into the NIWFA senior set up.
Pre-season training starts at Inver Park on Tuesday night.
