Oran Kearney has signed a new three-year contract with Coleraine

Kearney’s success has also been felt on the continent as well as he led the Bannsiders to victory over European regulars NK Maribor.

In recent weeks the club have announced an ambitious redevelopment plan for their Showgrounds home following on from the installation of a 3G surface this summer.

And chairman Colin McKendry is delighted Kearney will be there to lead them into this exciting new era.

“The Board of Directors are delighted that Oran has signed this new contract,” he said.

“The offer has been on the table for quite some time but we wanted to put our full focus into ending the season well.

“Our success in recent seasons is well documented and we believe that Oran can take us even further.

“This is an exciting time for Coleraine Football Club both on and off the pitch with the redevelopment plans and we want Oran to be a central part of that.

“I’ve no doubt that we have a lot to look forward to in the weeks, months and years ahead under Oran’s leadership.”
