Our current Head of Youth Development Ryan Prentice, has informed the club that due to time restraints and personal desires to coach in other areas of football, he will not be continuing in his role with the Academy next season.
Ryan has dedicated a total of five years to the club, three of which have been spent in his current role. With the help of a great group of coaches Ryan has overseen the continual progress of the academy, his depth of knowledge, passion and personal drive has without doubt been a major influence in allowing the academy to reach the ever increasing levels that we have achieved today. Future success can only be built on a solid foundation and Ryan can be very proud of the fact that he is leaving the academy in such a strong position. Although we are very disappointed to be losing Ryan we do however totally respect his decision, and he will always be a welcome face at Mourneview Park as he hopefully watches players that he has helped to develop over the past five years.
Ryan has asked us to thank all associated with the academy, committee, parents, players and especially the coaches for all their hard work and effort in his time and he wishes everyone continued success.
I am sure that everyone will join the Academy committee in thanking Ryan and wishing him continued success in any future roles.

Sorry to hear your leaving Ryan Prentice but all the best with your future footballing endeavours. Thanks again for all the support and advice you have given me during your time at the Club 👍💙⚽
Congratulations Ryan, from an outsider looking in the structures and forward thinking initiatives put in place at Glenavon over the past few years are there for all to see. It takes a lot of buy in from many different departments from first-team to boardroom to volunteer coaches to carry out what you all have up until now and I'm sure the seeds planted during your tenure will reap their rewards in the years ahead. Best of luck for your future ventures.
Wishing you all the very best Ryan .Many thanks for all the advice ,support ,encouragement and the time you give Josh (Ricer). Top coach.
Big Big Loss Ryan but wish you all the best for the future mate 😢

Our Under 18s took the field at Seaview tonight in the Harry Cavan Cup Semi Final but were beaten by a strong Cliftonville side.
The 14 man squad contained seven 2001s, four 2002s and two 2003s. A disappointing result in the end but a great experience for those involved.
Our best wishes go to Barry Johnston and his Cliftonville side in the Final where they will play either Linfield or Coleraine. ... See MoreSee Less
