Ballymena United will interview six candidates next week for the vacant manager's job at the Showgrounds.

Lisburn Distillery assistant manager Glenn Ferguson, former Whites boss Paul Kirk and ex-Cliftonville manager Eddie Patterson are on the shortlist.

Former Glentoran boss Alan McDonald and N Ireland U19 assistant manager Stephen Robinson will also be interviewed.

The Sky Blues are seeking a new manager following the resignation of Roy Walker last week.

Joe McCall was appointed caretaker manager at Ballymena after Walker's departure.
