Nash ‘front runner’ for St Patrick’s Athletic job

According to The Irish Mirror, Town U23 coach Gerard Nash is the front runner for the current vacant managerial position at St Patrick’s Athletic.

It is understood the Dubliner, 33, was in talks with the Inchicore outfit yesterday and is interested although club sources insist no deal has been struck as yet.

Nash has been in his current job at Town since 2016 having previously been in charge of the U18s. The former central defender joined the Blues as a 15-year-old but saw his playing career end at 19 after only one sub appearance for Town and a handful of games on loan at Hartlepool and Southend following a succession of serious knee injuries.
