It is with much regret that the directors of LMFC announce the resignation of Jason Maher as manager of the club’s first team.
It is particularly disappointing that Jason has decided to stand down after achieving all his goals for the past season which concluded with the valiant effort at Portman Road in May.
The directors and all involved with the club wish Jason a happy and successful future both personally and in sport. It goes without saying that there will always be a warm welcome for him at Stoneylands in the future.
Further announcement regarding Jason’s successor to follow.
On his departure, Jason made the following comments that he wished to be posted on the club website:
“This has without doubt been the most difficult decision that I have ever faced in football and one that resulted in much heartache and soul searching. Having to break the news to Alf was the most emotional thing I have ever done in football.
I genuinely think this is in the best interests of all concerned and one that I hope everyone will understand in time. My time leading this club was a proud period in my life and the Senior Cup Final is a night that I will never forget.
Sometimes as manager I made decisions that not everyone agreed with but I genuinely did what I felt was best for the club. I want to thank everyone connected with the club and wish you all the best for the future as individuals and people.
Thanks for everything.
Jules, Danny and Brian were a huge part of the management team and whose contribution could not be underestimated during the season.
Danny combined the player/coach role brilliantly and left a huge impact on me with his willingness to work hard with the lads and was a great personal friend.
Jules was a huge signing for me personally and even though we sometimes disagreed he bought great enthusiasm to the job as well as a great willingness to try and bring success and professionalism to the club. He was great person to bounce ideas off and often came up with ideas that would improve the squad and results.
Brian was a great physio and spent many an hour working with the players on rehab and patching them up ready for the next game and was always a great character to have around the club.
I wish all three the very best in the future and can’t thank them enough.”
