Coleraine boss Oran Kearney has agreed a new three-year contract extension at The Showgrounds.

Kearney – who has been in the charge of the club since February 2011 – steered the Bannsiders to European football and an Irish Cup final appearance last season.

And chairman Colin McKendry is delighted that Kearney has committed his long-term future with the Bannsiders.

“The new deal is a reward for our terrific season last year,” McKendry said.

“It is no secret that the young players at the club have all agreed long-term contracts because of Oran.

“As a club we believe he is the man to further their development.

“The contract had been on the table for a long time, but with the cup final and Europe we had to put it to the back burner.”
