Stephen Frail leaves Irish FA to join Dundee United

Stephen Frail has left the Irish FA to take up the post of assistant manager at Scottish Premiership side Dundee United. 

Frail, a native of Glasgow and who held the post of team manager for both the Northern Ireland U17 and U19 teams, spent four and a half years at the association.

Northern Ireland senior men’s team manager Ian Baraclough praised Frail’s tenure as he heads for Tannadice.

He said: “I’m delighted for Stephen to get this opportunity. He has been a real asset for the development of our underage groups and the association as a whole.

“He joined on my first trip as the U21s manager to Estonia and was a huge help to me during that period. 

“He has been an asset from day one and we wish him every success in this new and exciting role.”

A replacement for Frail will be sought in due course.
