Athlone Town expected to name Roddy Collins as new boss

Athlone Town are expected to announce Roddy Collins as their new manager for a second time tomorrow.

Rumours had been circulating that the midlands club were interested in bringing their former boss back ever since Ricardo Monsanto parted ways with the club.

The Dubliner lead the club to promotion from the First Division by winning the championship in 2013 but left for Derry City in 2014.

Collins has a good record in the First Division as he took two clubs up to the Premier Division (Athlone & Monaghan), so could be a great move from the board of Athlone.

Athlone Town had no official comment to make on the matter.

More to follow.
