Football NSW League Two Men’s side Central Coast United have appointed former Republic of Ireland Under 21 International and ex-Bonnyrigg White Eagles manager Wayne O’Sullivan as its new coach for the 2022 season.
O’Sullivan replaces the club’s inaugural coach Stuart Davis who spent four solid seasons at the ambitious club. Davis has since been appointed as the club’s new Head of Football.
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.
More recently, O’Sullivan was part of the Bonnyrigg White Eagles family as the club’s senior coach up until earlier this year.
The 47-year-old was looking forward to the challenge with his new club.
“Central Coast is my home in Australia, my kids have grown up here and its great for me to be involved with my local team.
“There’s a few former Central Coast Academy boys from the time I was the Technical Director and Youth coach who I am very familiar with and have already connected with club captain Daniel McFarlane who was one of them.
“For me these boys do not belong in Football NSW’s League Two competition, and I will be working hard in getting the team promoted and building from there.”
