The PFAI, the Irish soccer’s players’ union, has voted in a new management committee to see it through to next summer.
The annual general meeting of the Professional Footballers’ Association of Ireland (PFAI) in Dublin at the weekend saw members debate a number of issues including summer soccer, the introduction of a standard players’ contract and the financial standing of the clubs that employ them.
Derry City’s Clive Delaney, Terry Palmer of Shamrock Rovers and Monaghan United’s Stuart Holt were voted on to the PFAI’s management committee at the meeting.
They replace Drogheda United player Mark Dempsey, Bohemians skipper Kevin Hunt and James Gannon, who resigned his position as treasurer following his appointment as manager of Dundalk.
