RAFFAELE Cretaro has been confirmed as the new assistant manager at Derry City.
Ruaidhri Higgins was this morning announced as Derry City’s manager on a three-and-a-half year deal.
Higgins moved swiftly to recruit former Finn Harps and Sligo Rovers player Cretaro (pictured by Joe Boland, North West Newspix).
Higgins replaces Declan Devine, whose departure from Brandywell came just yesterday morning.
Cretaro played two seasons at Finn Harps and became a fans’ favourite in that time having made his name in the League of Ireland during a long spell at Sligo Rovers. Cretaro attended Harps’ recent home win over Waterford.
Higgins and Cretaro were team-mates during their spell at Bohemians.
A native of Limavady, 36-year-old Higgins leaves his role as Republic of Ireland chief scout and opposition analyst to take over from Devine.Tags:
