In Focus: Warren Feeney

A look at the playing and managerial career of our new Assistant Coach

25 May 2017

Warren Feeney joined the Reds on the same day as Head Coach Kewell last week.

The former Northern Ireland international striker made 41 senior apperances for his country, scoring five times in both UEFA Euro and World Cup qualifiers, as well as international friendlies.

 Feeney also represented his country at U16 and U21 level. The forward's playing career began as a trainee at Leeds United - he was initially loaned out to AFC Bournemouth before making the switch to the Cherries permanent in June 2001. 

He subsequently went on to make 90 appearances for the south-coast club, scoring 33 goals in the process.

At the end of the 2003/04 campaign Feeney moved to Stockport County where he would go on to score 15 times in 31 league appearances. Luton Town acquired his services soon after in 2005 where he managed 11 goals in 50 apperances for the Hatters.

A loan spell with Cardiff City was then made permanent, before Feeney spent time on loan with Swansea City, Dundee United and Sheffield Wednesday. The forward moved to Oldham Athletic, Plymouth Argyle and Salisbury City before ending his playing career with Linfield.

It was with Linfield where Feeney combined playing with his managment role from May 2014 - he took charge 62 times and had an impressive win ratio of nearly 60% during his time in charge. 

A move to Wales and Newport County came in October 2015 when he was appointed assistant manager to John Sheridan - he then became manager of the side after the sacking of Sheridan in January 2016. He parted company with the club in September 2016.
