Flannery developed his craft in Ireland working at FAI regional centres, with current Ireland U16 manager Paul Osam. He joined City soon after moving to England, achieving a number of milestones with the Ladies First Team before stepping away due to work commitments.
He told us “I aim to create an environment for players of all levels to want to play and enjoy football. I try and allow players to be creative and encourage this as much as possible with constant challenges in training. The team environment has a fresh positive feel to it and I’m excited to get going.”
