Declan Devine has been named Derry City boss for the second time, signing a two-year deal to replace Kenny Shiels. 

Kevin Deery and Marty McCann come in as part of his management team, with Paddy McCourt overseeing the club's Academy, a role he took up back in June.

Devine won a league with the Candystripes as a player back in 1997 and then led them to a memorable FAI Cup success as manager in 2012, beating St Pat's 3-2 in extra-time.

"We need an identity, we need passion, we need players who are going to respect and honour what it means to play for Derry City," he said at his unveiling. 

Derry finished eighth this season after a tough campaign but Shiels did deliver silver in his final year; they beat Cobh Ramblers to lift the EA Sports Cup.
