Following meetings and discussions over the past few weeks, Paul Leeman has left his role as First Team Coach.
A club spokesperson said this evening; “On the appointment of Mick McDermott as Head Coach both Paul and Gary Smyth were offered and encouraged to accept continued employment on the same terms as before while supported by the club in securing their necessary coaching qualifications. Sadly, they declined to be part of the next stage of the club’s development. Everyone within the club deeply regrets their decision.
We respect and thank both Paul and Gary for the great part they played for Glentoran as players, and we also thank them for their work within the management team over the past season. They will always be welcome at the Oval.”
