Waterford FC have said they will not give any insight into why club doctor Sinead Fitzpatrick resigned from her position this week.

Dr Fitzpatrick stepped away during the week, with a note that suggested some regrets about the circumstances.

"Resigning when you feel things are very wrong is sometimes the right thing to do though," she said on Facebook. 

"I'm very sad tonight, but happy I have done the right thing."

Manager John Sheridan wouldn't speak to the media after the game with Cork City yesterday, but assistant Fran Rockett was available in his place.

"I wouldn't be privy to that, to be fair," he said when asked by RTÉ Sport's Damien O'Meara if he was aware of the issues Dr Fitzpatrick had raised.

"I'm not even on Facebook. It's only hearsay from my point of view."

RTÉ Sport submitted a list of questions to Waterford FC last night. 

Asked if any concerns about Covid-19 policies or procedures had been notified to club management by medical professionals since the club had returned training, Waterford FC said they had received "no official complaints".

Seeking further clarification, RTÉ Sport asked if any issues were raised in a form that wouldn't constitute "official or formal complaints".

The club replied saying that they felt their original answer clarified the issue.

With regard to the resignation of Dr Fitzpatrick and the reasoning for her decision, the club said that they do not "explain as to the reasons of any resignation of background staff".

Waterford FC also stated that no member of the club's playing, management or administrative staff has travelled to any country not on the green list since it was introduced, revealing too that manager John Sheridan had been working in Belfast before taking over at the RSC.
