Jersey football coach Jimmy Reilly resigns because of work commitments

The Jersey FA has confirmed Jimmy Reilly has resigned from his position as manager of the Jersey men's senior teams.

In a statement Reilly said his resignation was due to work commitments.

"I have enjoyed my time managing the Jersey FA senior men’s teams and the obvious highlight was winning the Muratti in Guernsey. Unfortunately my work commitments no longer allow me to give the time that would be required to the role and regretfully I have therefore resigned."

Reilly was appointed to his role in October 2014 and led the Island side to a Muratti win in Guernsey in May 2015 and went on to manage the team through the NatWest Island Games last July.

But the campaign was a disappointment with the hosts knocked out of the competition at the group stage.

"The Jersey FA would like to thank Jimmy for his time and commitment to the role and we wish him well for the future. The Jersey FA have one of its regular, monthly board meetings next week and there will be no further comment until after that meeting".
