Roddy Collins has parted company with Derry City ‘by mutual consent’ following a meeting with club Chairman, Philip O’Doherty tonight.

The Dubliner who took charge of the ‘Candy Stripes’ for seven months, won just three matches from the opening 13 games of the season in all competitions.

Friday night’s 0-1 defeat to Shamrock Rovers at Brandywell proved to be his last match in charge.

It’s believed that current assistant manager, Peter Hutton will be expected to step in as a caretaker until the Board of Directors meet this week.
