The club have moved quickly to replace Trevor Croly and Fenlon seems like the perfect fit for the Hoops.

At 45, he is the second most successful manager in League of Ireland history.

Fenlon said: “I am delighted to be taking over as manager of Shamrock Rovers and am very much looking forward to getting to work at the club. The team is in a good position, and so we’ll be looking to push on and build on that.

"I am familiar with the team having seen them numerous times this season and so we will get to work straight away. I’m looking forward to the game against Derry City on Friday night. Hopefully there will be a big crowd and we will work hard to get a result from the game and start on a positive note.”

This news caps a good few days for the club after they booked their  place in the league cup final against Dundalk.
