Linfield are close to launching their five-year strategic plan which includes embracing a new full-time model and the club's general manager, Pat Fenlon, insists the Covid-19 pandemic will not derail their ambitious project.

The Dubliner, a hugely popular player with the Blues in the 1990s, has been helping the board formulate the strategic direction of the club over the next few years and the time for change is now. Even though the pandemic has posed significant financial challenges for Irish League clubs, Linfield remain convinced a more full-time philosophy will pave the way for greater success both domestically and in Europe.

With his considerable managerial experience in the League of Ireland and Scotland, former Waterford general manager Fenlon has drawn on all his expertise and contacts to help the Blues weather the Covid-19 storm and emerge from it an even stronger force. Larne, Glentoran and Crusaders have embraced a full-time set-up and Fenlon believes Linfield must move with the times to stay ahead of the pack.
