Crewe boss Eamonn McCarthy has made the club aware of his decision to step down as First team manager, ending his 6 year tenure at the helm.
Everyone at the club wishes him well and we would like to put on record our thanks to Eamonn, and his lovely family Roisin, Caoilinn and Roise. It is very easy to forget, or not to see, the sacrifices that a manager makes in running a football club, especially the time away from family. Eamonn always wore his heart on his sleeve and gave everything he had to make our club better. For that we will always be very grateful. We will miss all the McCarthy’s being around on match days.
As a young man in the mid 1990’s, Eamonn came to Crewe as a player, alongside many great characters of that time, including of course the legend that was Tommy Breslin who was closing out his football career. It was hard to foresee that one day Eamonn would end up as First team manager, but that he did, and has given us many great memories along the way both on and off the pitch!
Even during the loss of his mother and father in a short space of time Eamonn remained dedicated to his role as manager of Crewe when many others would have understandably taken a break from the dugout. We hope that Eamonn and his family will come and visit Crewe Park as the door will always be open for a warm welcome. Thank you for everything you have done for the club.
Also departing is Sean Brown who has been by Eamonn’s side for the last few years. His contribution on the training pitch and on match days has been invaluable and we thank Sean for all his hard work and dedication as well.
The search for Eamonn’s successor will begin immediately as we look forward to preparing for next season.
