FORMER Limerick FC goalkeeping coach has been confirmed as the new goalkeeping coach at SSE Airtricity League Premier Division high flyers Cork City.

Former League of Ireland goalkeeper Hickey departed the Limerick FC backroom team 12 months ago.

Cork City manager, John Caulfield welcomed Hickey on board as the Leesiders new goalkeeping coach this Monday.

Caulfield’s management team comprises of assistant manager John Cotter and first team coaches, Liam Kearney and Lisa Fallon.

Hickey joins Cork’s coaching staff after Phil Harrington stepped down following five successful years at the club.

Hickey started his schoolboy soccer career with Corbally Utd, before moving on to Granville Rangers after U-15s.

From there the highly rated goalkeeper went to Pike Rovers Premier at 18 and later moved to Limerick where he spent five years playing in the SSE Airtricity League. He was then sold to Galway United where he spent three further years playing at League of Ireland level.

Hickey retired from playing League of Ireland football in the 2002/03 season.
