Speculation mounts about Mick Cooke's future

Mick Cooke at his official unveiling as Athlone Town manager.

SPECULATION is growing this morning (Monday) that Athlone Town manager Mick Cooke has been relieved of his duties.

Athlone lost their tenth match in a row last Friday when defeated by St Patrick’ Athletic and have failed to register a point in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division to date.

Local speculation suggests that the former Bray Wanderers player and assistant manager Keith Long will be named Athlone’s manager today but will not take charge of the team for tonight’s Leinster Senior Cup quarter-final against St Pat’s (Lissywollen, 7.45pm).

Athlone Town FC have yet to confirm the speculation. More to follow.
