“Waterford FC, Kevin Sheedy and Mike Newell have parted company by mutual consent.
“We wish to thank both Kevin and Mike for their service to the club during these difficult times and we wish them both the very best for the future.”
“Taking charge of Saturday’s game against Drogheda United will be Mike Geoghegan, head of Academy.”
