Stafford appointed Ballinamallard manager

Ballinamallard United FC has appointed Mark Stafford as first-team manager.

Stafford, a former player at the club with over 250 appearances was Tommy Canning’s assistant last season but will now take over as manager following Canning’s unexpected departure a couple of weeks ago. 

Following his appointment Stafford said:


“As everyone will know I have a close affinity with the Mallards. They provided me with the opportunity to progress my football career, I’m pleased to be back in the fold at Ferney and while management isn’t easy, everything in life has its challenges.

“I will give this challenging role the dedication it deserves, I look forward to being part of the Mallards family of players, management, officers, members, sponsors, volunteers and supporters.”

Ballinamallard United Chairman Tom Elliott said:

“Mark Stafford needs no introduction to all at Ferney Park. He has been a dedicated and committed player and more recently coach, with a vast experience of the local game.

“We are delighted that Mark has taken on this role and look forward to him sharing his experience throughout the Club. I ask everyone around the Club and Community to give Mark their support in every way possible.”
