Bohemians appoint Alan Reynolds as new first-team boss

Bohemians have unveiled Alan Reynolds as their replacement for former boss Declan Devine.

The Waterford man spent 16 years playing in the League of Ireland and has coached for 20. 

His playing and managerial career overlapped when he returned to Waterford United as player/manager.

In between the three spells at his boyhood club, he played for Longford Town, Cork City, Shelbourne and Shamrock Rovers twice.

As a manager, Reynolds has acted as assistant manager to clubs up and down the country, spending time at Derry City, St. Patricks Athletic, Cork City, Dundalk and the Republic of Ireland U21’s with Stephen Kenny. 

Most recently he was second-in-command to Keith Long at Waterford where he was head coach from 2017 to 2020.

Upon his arrival at Dalymount Park, the new Bohs boss said; “This is a massive with a passionate fan base. 

"It’s a massive challenge but it is the right one for me and at the right time, and I can’t wait to get cracking.

“Straight away when contact was made, I was very interested. Over the past few years, I’ve had different opportunities to get back into management.

“There is huge potential here. When Bohs teams give the fans something to cheer about, this club’s supporters are electric, and make it a real hostile atmosphere for opponents both home and away” Reynolds explained.

“Over the years I’ve been involved in the league, it has been the same in Dalymount. When you are out on the pitch preparing for a game, you can feel the energy of the place and that is something that any player should thrive off."
