Former Rangers and Linfield striker Lee Feeney is focused on his promotion goal after being appointed manager of Premier Intermediate League side Bangor.

The Seasiders were sitting fourth in the PIL table before the league was suspended due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Feeney, assistant manager to his cousin Warren Feeney at Ards last season, said: "I'm very proud to get the job at Bangor and I'm looking forward to the difficult challenge ahead.

"My first objective is to get the club promoted back to the Championship. But I'm distinctly aware that the Premier Intermediate League is tough and the team will need to fight for every point in order to make promotion a reality.

"I would like to thank the board for their belief in me and I'm highly motivated to ensure we all succeed at Bangor."

Bangor FC Director of Football Graham Bailie told the club's website: "Lee's appointment is an exciting prospect for the Seasiders. He is young, driven and determined, which are all necessary attributes to help us gain promotion to the Championship and beyond.

"I am pleased to offer this opportunity to Lee, especially as he is a former Bangor player. He shares the vision we have at the club."

John Douglas, who also played for Linfield and Rangers, will be Feeney's assistant.
