Longford Town boss Stephen Henderson is hopeful that he will be staying with the club for the 2024 season.
Town fell to their third successive defeat on Saturday night, 3-2 to Treaty United. The result all but ends any hope of town making the play-off.
Longford have lost 15 of their 33 league games so far and find themselves eight points off the play-off places with nine points to play for.
However, Town boss Stephen Henderson revealed to Shannonside Sport he is keen to stay with Longford Town for 2024.
“Yeah, I’ve been talking to the chairman about it. We’re going to have another conversation about it next weekend” Henderson told Shannonside Sport after Saturday night’s defeat.
“I’d love to stay, because, I’ve genuinely done really well at clubs I’ve been with” declared Henderson. “I don’t feel I’ve done well here in relation to what we’ve brought to Longford Town”.
“I think the chairman is open to that. So the two of us have already had, kind of the record conversations”.
“We’ll meet up over the weekend and tie down whatever needs to be tied down” explained Henderson.
“I don’t want this to be ‘what happened to me and Longford Town’ we need to bring success to Longford town”.
While 2023 hasn’t gone well for the Town, Henderson revealed planning for next season is already well underway.
“We’ve already identified some players we want to bring in. Next year is a huge year for the club it’s 100 years”.
“We have to be really competitive on the pitch and be challenging next year”.
Longford Town travel to Henderson's old club Cobh Ramblers this Saturday as the league of Ireland first division runs to a conclusion. Waterford, Cobh, Wexford and Athlone Town occupy the play-off places.
