Bohs boss Keith Long has signed a new four-year deal to stay on at the Dalymount Park outfit.

Long took the reins in November 2014, bringing in his former St Patrick's Athletic team-mate Trevor Croly as his assistant two years later.

The pair have worked wonders, leading the club to European qualification two years in a row, with this season's second-placed finish representing Bohs' highest league position in a decade. Croly has also penned a fresh four-year contract.

"We are a club going in the right direction," said Long.

"Prior to Covid, we were in a very strong position and that was down to a collective effort of everyone at the club, with record numbers of members and season tickets holders.

"We've managed to qualify for Europe for the second season running with the youngest squad in the Premier Division, and the players and staff deserve great credit for that.

"The challenge for us now is to continue to make progress on and off the pitch. 

"Our strength is in our supporters, our members. That is why I hope they will continue to get behind the club and the team, as they have done throughout my time at the club, despite the continuing uncertainty that we all face in our world today.

"I have loved every minute working at Bohs, working with so many great people who love the club. I am excited for the future and look forward to chasing our dreams together."
