Bohemians announce new Head of Academy as Craig Sexton takes over



Bohemians have announced that Craig Sexton will take over as Head of Academy at the club.

Sexton was previously manager of the Bohemians Under-19 and worked with the FAI but will now depart both roles to become Head of Academy

The much touted coach had won a league and cup double with Bohemians and spent a season as assistant at Shelbourne.

In taking the role, he said: “There has been brilliant work done over the last number of years. There are a lot of good people who have been driving it forward as much as they can. Their work has put us in a position where we have the potential and ability to grow in all areas.

“I have been involved in youth development for a long time. I have always wanted to progress everything that I am involved in.

“Ultimately I am here to develop everyone at the football club wherever I can; structures, coach development and player development.”

“For young players developing at the moment, the resources and supports they have now at academy level are unbelievable compared to what went before. We are lucky to have that, we are lucky to be able to support the development of young players.

“We are in a much better place in terms of facilities available to us. We have the use of St Kevin’s resources at Shanowen and St Aidan’s, and Bohemians have a first-class training facility at DCU.

“Everything is on site now, everything is catered for. It is night and day compared to what I played in at that age. Don’t get me wrong, I had a really good upbringing and schooling in football as a young player. But what the lads have now is on another level.”
