Ambitious National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s 2 side Bonnyrigg White Eagles have appointed former Republic of Ireland Under 21 International and ex-Central Coast Mariners assistant Wayne O’Sullivan as its new coach for the remainder of the season.
O’Sullivan replaces Milan Blagojevic at the helm with the 45-year-old hoping to bring in good fortunes for the club who were relegated to the NPL 2 NSW Men’s competition in 2018.
Having played for the likes of Cardiff City, Swindon Town, Plymouth Argyle and also in the old National Soccer League with the Northern Spirit and Parramatta Power, O’Sullivan was also part of the A-League with the Mariners.
Born in Cyprus, O’Sullivan has managed Geylang United and was an assistant coach at the Wellington Phoenix, Mariners as well as the head coach at the Newcastle Jets W-League side.
O’Sullivan’s first task as head coach of the White Eagles is a must win home match against strugglers Canterbury Bankstown FC on Saturday at Bonnyrigg.
In an official statement by the White Eagles, the club was looking forward to O’Sullivan kicking off his tenure.
“Bonnyrigg White Eagles are excited to start a new chapter under the guidance of Wayne O’Sullivan.
“Sully will build on the fundamentals that Milan Blagojevic put in place as the club continues their quest to return to the top tier of NPL football in NSW.
“We believe Sully is the right man to lead the club into the forthcoming challenges.”
