Ants co-manager Ronnie McDonald last night informed the club of his intention to stand down from his position with immediate effect. Ronnie has been a mainstay of the club, in both a playing and management capacity for the past 14 years and the decision has not been made lightly, however he wants to return to a playing role. “I’m stepping down to hopefully focus on playing regularly again, I’ve always said I wanted to play for a local amateur team before I retire and by stepping down from the management side of things this gives me the opportunity to do that. Who knows though it may not be the last time you’ve seen me as an Ants player”.
The word legend is over-used these days but Ronnie will go down as a true Ants legend for all his hard work and dedication over the past 14 years and knows he is always welcome at McKenna Park.
Thanks for everything Ronnie and all the best for the future from all at the Club.
An announcement on the new management team will be made shortly.
