Lilywhites boss believes that if the club loses players due to financial problems, it will make avoiding relegation from the Airtricity Premier Division a lot tougher

Dundalk manager Sean McCaffrey has expressed his concern that the Lilywhites may lose several players due to financial difficulties and believes that it will make his job a lot more taxing.

The Lilywhites, who lie in 10th position in the Airticity Premier Division, last month issued a plea to the general public for financial help in maintaining their status in the league and recently reissued a plea for aid.

Speaking to the Irish Times, former Republic of Ireland under-17 and U19 manager McCaffrey said that the club had already received inquiries about some players.

“I would be very concerned if it happens because we’re not in a great position as it is," said McCaffrey.

"But if we lose three or four players it’s going to be very, very difficult to keep the club in the Premier Division,” added the manager.

He continued: “We’ve had inquiries about Peter Cherrie, Derek Foran, Chris Shields, Mark Griffin and Michael Rafter. If we were to lose them, it would be mission impossible, I think.”

Dundalk travel to Tolka Park this evening Friday July 6 to take on Shelbourne in the league. Kick off 20:00 (BST)
