Camlough man Cathal Lennon in running for vacant Millwall FC managerial position
Monday, December 30th, 2013
Camlough man Cathal Lennon has emerged as a potential candidate for the vacant Millwall Football Club managerial position after Newry Times covered his footballing exploits last month.
On December 4th 2013 Newry Times sports columnist Sean O’Siridean revealed how former Camlough Rovers footballer Lennon was making waves in the footballing world Down Under after he guided Ireland to World Cup glory in Perth, Australia.
The former Portadown and Newry winger guided his team of exiles to a 4-2 victory over the The Democratic Republic of the Congo in the final, which hasn’t gone unnoticed in the Football League in England.
Cathal, who also played with distinction for many years at left wing or left back with Bessbrook United and Woodside, told Newry Times last month that he was enjoying the coaching aspect of the game. Little did he know that just four weeks later, he would be sharing betting odds with Gianfranco Zola, Malky Mackay and Glenn Hoddle.
Unbelievably, Cathal is a 33/1 shot for the vacant position with online gambling giants, Sky Bet. These are quite good odds considering who is also at this price, household names such as Ian Halloway, Tony Mowbray and Mike Phelan.
But don’t be rushing to the bookies just yet, we spoke this morning to Cathal from his Perth home and although jokingly he said he was leaving for secret talks in London, he admitted that while flattered to be in the line up he is happy in Perth.
