Waterford FC manager Alan Reynolds has left his position at the SSE Airtricity Premier Division club.

Reynolds has been linked with two backroom positions in recent weeks, the Republic of Ireland Under-21s and Dundalk, but there is no news on his next move.

He became the Blues manager in 2017, leading them to promotion to the Premier Division and a fourth place finish in their first season back in the top flight.

A technicality meant they were unable to compete in Europe.

In a statement, Waterford said they were "very sad" to learn of Reynolds' departure.

Players and management are currently temporarily laid off from employment at the RSC.

They said: "With the League of Ireland in a very difficult position, we completely understand his decision.

"He will be hugely missed throughout the football club by fans, supporters, staff and indeed his players.

"Alan achieved great success for the club from the start with Waterford FC's promotion from the First to Premier Division in his first year with us. He then drove the club on to reach a European position in 2018, to then consolidate Waterford as a top-flight club in 2019.

"Waterford FC would like to thank Alan for all his hard work over the years and establishing the club as a strong contender in the League of Ireland.

"We wish him and his family all the very best and in what he decides to do in the future."
