Dunfermline Athletic

Declan Devine becomes assistant to Stephen Kenny

Author: Neil Farrell Date: Wednesday, 6th Dec 2006

Declan Devine arrives at the club this week to assist Pars gaffer Stephen Kenny just days after the two orchestrated a dramatic injury-time 4-3 win over St Patrick’s Athletic in the FAI Carlsberg Cup Final which was played on Sunday.

Craig Robertson will continue to assist in coaching the first team with the three of them working together in all aspects of the coaching.

Throughout his managerial career this is the firt time that Pars boss Stephen Kenny has brought his assistant to another club. He brings 35 year-old former Ipswich and Derry City goalkeeper Declan Devine to our shores to assist him and Craig Robertson turn the fortunes of the first team squad.

Devine broke the news to the Derry City chairman Hugh McDaid yesterday morning and admits that it was a "massive wrench" to leave Derry but added:

"But for myself, for the first time personally, I feel as though I need to move on.

"The only reason I`m doing it is for selfish reasons. I need to test myself."

All here at DAFC.net wish Declan all the best for his time at the club.
