Embattled Portadown boss Ronnie McFall has been handed a vote of confidence from the club’s board of directors.

The pressure has been mounting on the Shamrock Park manager following a poor start to the season.

The Ports sit seventh in the Danske Bank Premiership after picking up just five wins from 13 opening league games.

But following a board meeting on Friday, the club’s hierarchy insist McFall has their “backing until the end of the season and a further statement will be released in due course”.

McFall’s current contract expires next summer, with the highly-decorated manager set to celebrate 29 years in charge of Portadown in December.

The Mid Ulster giants entertain champions Crusaders on Saturday afternoon in another crunch Premiership clash at Shamrock.
