Bohemian FC have announced Aaron Callaghan as their new first team manager. He will take up his position next week.

A press release just released from the club reads:

Aaron Callaghan, 45, brings to Bohemians a strong commitment to the highest coaching standards. He was one of the first Irish coaches to obtain the UEFA PRO licence in 2007 and has qualifications in sports management, in injury management and fitness and in supervisory management.

Callaghan has been a coach tutor for the FAI and is a founding member of the Football Coaching Association of Ireland established in 2009 to improve coaching standards.

Callaghan has been a coach or manager over the past decade with Crusaders, Athlone Town, Longford Town and UCD. Most recently, he was a first team coach with St Patrick's Athletic.

Before becoming a coach, Aaron Callaghan played as a defender for ten years in England, where he was with Stoke City, Oldham Athletic, Crewe Alexandra and Preston North End. In that period, he was capped for Ireland at under-21 level.

Back in Ireland from the late 1990s, he played with Shelbourne, Crusaders, St Patrick's Athletic, Dundalk and Longford Town.

Callaghan's first task will be to assemble a Bohemian squad for the new season. Some of the amateur players in last season's squad have signed again for the club.

"We are delighted to have secured a manager in good time for the start of the new season," said Bohemian FC president Chris Brien. "Aaron Callaghan has strong knowledge of the League of Ireland and will bring broad experience to the job. We welcome him to the club and we are sure our supporters will wish him well."

Bohemians' competitive matches start on 13 February 2012 with the first round of the Setanta Sports Cup. The league season opens on 2 March with an away match in Derry.................................. some jump for him!!!
