I will be Derry boss next season – Shiels

Kenny Shiels says he has been assured by the Derry City board that he will remain as manager despite a disappointing season ending with a 5-0 hammering by St Pat's.

Friday night's defeat in the final game of the season left the Candystripes eighth in the Premier Division.

It was also a an eighth loss in their last nine league matches although Derry won the EA Sports Cup in September.
