Eddie Patterson ready to step back into an Irish League dugout, says old pal

 

By Steven Beacom

Former Cliftonville and Glentoran boss Eddie Patterson is ready to return to top-flight management, according to one of his closest friends in the game.

Patterson was sacked by the Glens two years ago despite twice winning the Irish Cup. He was back at The Oval for a County Antrim Shield encounter on Tuesday night in a supporting role for Crumlin Star boss Paul Trainor, who was in Patterson's backroom staff at Cliftonville and Glentoran.

Trainor revealed that Patterson is getting the itch again.

"Every Saturday Eddie attends our game and he was at The Oval. Eddie is hungry again," said Crumlin boss Trainor, whose side lost 4-2. "He had a back operation a couple of weeks ago and now fancies another go at management.

"Most definitely you will see Eddie back. He is a top manager and why not in the Irish Premier League? He is a very successful manager.

"Eddie won two Irish Cups for Glentoran and was the major force in building the Cliftonville team that won two league titles. It was Tommy Breslin who got the benefit of it after Eddie left. Of course Tommy added to it and deserves the plaudits but Eddie deserves praise too."

Having worked at The Oval, Trainor has kept an eye on Gary Haveron's progress as Glentoran boss. He has been impressed.

"Gary has done a great job. They are playing with confidence and look like a team who want the ball. Glentoran are on the up and I'm glad to see it," said Trainor.

"It was a difficult job when Eddie was boss but Glentoran supporters are football minded and if the players are trying for them, I think Gary will be a success."
