Pat Felon Appointed Manager Of Hibernian

Richard Smith by Richard Smith / 25 November 2011, 10:53

Pat Fenlon has been unveiled as the new Hibernian Manager on a two-and-a-half year deal. He becomes the club's fifth manager in just four years after deciding to leave his post as boss of League of Ireland club Bohemians. The 42-year-old replaces the sacked Colin Calderwood who has since joined Championship club Birmingham City as Chris Houghton's assistant. Originally Shamrock Rovers manager Michael O'Neill and experienced SPL manager Jim Jefferies topped the Next Hibernian Manager Betting but once Fenlon emerged as the bookies favourite it appeared that Hibs had found their replacement, with Fenlon as short as 1/8 in the days leading up to today's appointment.

During his time in Ireland Fenlon managed Shelbourne, Derry City and Bohemians, winning a combined five League of Ireland championships and three Cups. The Hibs vacancy proved to be too good to turn down and he was able to leave Bohemians because of a clause in his contract that allowed him to be released without compensation. He takes over ninth place Hibs who are just two points from bottom in the SPL. Their home form has really let them down, with their only win this season at Easter Road coming against St Johnstone back in September. Fenlon is both a successful and ambitious manager and will look to get Hibs back to winning ways in front of their passionate home supporters.

Fenlon will be thrust straight into action as Hibs travel to St Johnstone on Saturday. Hibs have won just one of their last six SPL matches while high flying Saints managed to hold league leaders Rangers to a goalless draw last Saturday. Paddy Power have installed the home side as the 11/10 favourites while Hibs can be backed at 5/2 to get off to a winning start under Fenlon. A draw is available at 9/4.
