Roy Keane returns to club management in Cobh - for one night anyway

Roy Keane’s name is being mentioned as one of the candidates for the newly vacant Aston Villa job and as luck would have it, he is practising his management skills in Cork tonight.

Keane is returning to old club Cobh Ramblers to manage one of the sides in a charity match.

The Republic of Ireland assistant manager will oversee a team of past players to take on Springfield FC in a match at St Colman’s Park in Cobh at 7.30pm tonight.

It may be a charity game, but we have a feeling the ex-players will still be giving their all with Keano on the sideline.

Would you disappoint this man?

Cobh Ramblers was Keane's first club - the Cork man played with them in 1989 and 1990 before crossing the water to sign with Nottingham Forest.

Tickets are priced at €5 (young ‘uns free) and all proceeds are going to Cobh Hospital development.

You can find out all the details on the Cobh Ramblers Facebook page.
