Moran Makes The Grade

December 7, 2013

AC Sports Images would like to congratulate Athlone native Padraig Moran on achieving an UEFA Coaching A License this week.

Moran began his footballing career with local side St Peters before moving to Scotland when he signed for Hearts. After several manager upheavals at Tynecastle, he returned home in 1993, signing for Sligo Rovers where his goal scoring feats quickly made him a fans favorite. 2001 saw the striker move to Derry City, however his Brandywell career failed to ignite during an injury plagued spell. He later signed for his home town League of Ireland club Athlone Town before playing a season with Limerick 37 and subsequently returning for a second spell with Athlone in 2008.

Morans managerial career began with Athlone Towns underage set up before being made Player/Assistant Manager for the Senior team under Brendan Place in 2009-2010, and again under Mike Kerley in 2011-2012. With Kerleys dismissal towards the end of the 2012 season, Moran took the reigns in a Caretaker Manager capacity. After departing the Athlone setup at the end of the 2012 season, he returned to play for St Peters in the Combined Counties Football League before taking the role of Senior Manager at Moore United in the Roscommon and District League.
