PETER Lennon announced his retirement from Wayside Celtic as manager after 27 incredible years in charge at the Golden Ball and, latterly, Jackson Park.
During his tenure, Lennon led the club to three FAI Intermediate Cups, five Leinster Senior League titles, two Metro Cups, three Charlie Cahill Cup crowns, two Noel Ryan Cups and the Leinster Senior Cup. In addition, he also managed LSL representative teams to many honours.
Paying tribute to Lennon, Wayside hailed his work in a club statement, saying: “His dedication to our club has no bounds, starting as a schoolboy in the early 70, playing senior football winning many honours before taking the reins.”
His long-time trusted assistants Keith Arnold and Daragh Mulligan have also retired.
“All have played a huge part in bringing Wayside to where they are today. The club cannot thank them enough for their loyal service and wish them well in the future.”
Wayside will play in the LSL Sunday Senior division when the new season eventually gets the go-ahead.
