Noel King is stepping down from the top job at Shelbourne

Eoin Wearen is set to replace Noel King as manager for the Shelbourne women’s team, with Rory Kirk confirmed as assistant manager.

‌King’s retirement comes after a disappointing FAI Cup Final against Athlone Town, after two extremely successful seasons.

‌Wearen has already made a name for himself in the football world having joined West Ham at age 16, spending five years at the club playing both youth and reserve.

‌The Dublin Native was also a part of the U17 and U19 national squads, making a total of seven appearances.

‌Following his retirement, Wearen moved to the United States to coach in the Evolution SC Academy, before joining Liverpool FC International as Head Coach.

‌The 31-year-old has been a part of Shelbourne FC Academy since July 2023 and he currently holds a UEFA A coaching licence.

‌The former Limerick FC player shared his excitement following his appointment:

“I am delighted to be appointed as the new first team manager at this fantastic football club and can’t wait to get going and begin preparations for next year,

“We already have a brilliant core group at the club, which contains some of the top senior players and leaders in the country and also an exciting crop of talented young players who are at the beginning of their careers as we look to help them fulfil their full potential.” he said.

Speaking on the announcement, Barry Mocke, CEO of Shelbourne FC said: “We are delighted with Eoin Wearen’s appointment as Manager of Shelbourne FC Women’s Team,

“Eoin has a very clear and ambitious vision for this team and is perfectly poised to elevate the club’s women’s football program to new heights.

“Eoin’s enthusiasm, experience, skill, and passion for the women’s game makes this a very exciting appointment for the club.”

‌Shelbourne fans will be hoping that Wearen will uplift the women’s team, after an inconsistent season left them second to Peamount United in the 2023 League of Ireland Premier.

Wearen will take on his new position for the new season.
