LEAGUE OF IRELAND club Wexford Youths have acquired the services of Jason Ryan as strength and conditioning coach as they begin their preparations for the new season.

The former Kildare football manager will be part of the coaching staff at Ferrycarrig Park for the next two months in the build-up to the club’s debut Premier Division campaign.  

Ryan stepped down as Lilywhite boss after almost eight years in inter-county management in August and will put Shane Keegan’s newly-promoted side through their paces ahead of the league opener against Longford on Friday 4 March.

“Wexford Youths FC are thrilled to announce that former Wexford & Kildare Gaelic Football Manager Jason Ryan has joined Shane Keegan’s Wexford Youths Premier Division Squad as Strength & Conditioning Coach for their 2016 Pre-Season Training Programme,” a club statement read.

“Jason took the lead in the Youths first training session of the year at Ferrycarrig Park last night. Jason brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise with him and he will be putting the first team squad through their paces for the next 2 months.”

Wexford were crowned First Division champions last season and will play in the top-flight for the first time in 2016.
