Our head coach Mike Ruddock has received an unsolicited approach from Neath -Swansea Ospreys and we have given our permission to Mike to enter into talks with Ospreys.
These talks have led to Ospreys making a short-term contract offer to Mike. This takes place with immediate effect.
Mark McHugh will take over the position as head coach of Lansdowne FC on an interim basis and will be assisted by Scott Deasy in the backs and Ben Armstrong in the forwards.
We wish Mike the best of luck and we realise the draw that this position has for him and will fully support any decision he makes.
To his enormous credit, Mike has made himself available to consult with the team and coaches over the next few weeks.
We hope to see all at home this weekend as the 1st XV take on Terenure in the All Ireland League.
On behalf of the Lansdowne Executive, Players, Coaches, Club Staff and Members.
