Mark Kinsella

Where is Mark Kinsella now?

Regarded by many as one of Charlton Athletic’s greatest players, Mark Kinsella finally retired from playing in 2006 whilst playing and coaching at Walsall.

Upon leaving Walsall he took on the role as development coach at Charlton Athletic where he progressed first to reserve team manager and then as first team coach to Phil Parkinson.

Unfortunately the pair were sacked in January 2011 after a succession of poor results.

Kinsella was back in football just six months later when he was appointed manager of non-league Daventry Town.

Although he was a popular figure at the club, it was obvious that he was over-qualified for the role and his lack of experience at step four level football saw his side drop from a play-off position the previous season to 16th place under his management.

He left Daventry Town in July 2012 following a cost-cutting exercise by the club’s owner.

In 2012 Mark Kinsella moved to Colchester United to take on the role of assistant manager to Joe Dunne but they both left in September 2014 by mutual consent.

Kinsella wasn’t out of the game for long as he was appointed assistant manager to Johnny McDonnell at League of Ireland side Drogheda in November 2014.

After a terrible run of form McDonnell resigned from his position in August 2015 and Mark Kinsella was given the manager’s job until the end of the season.

Unfortunately he was unable to keep the club from relegation and moved back into a coaching role in the club after they appointed a new permanent manager.

In April 2016, the Football Association of Ireland announced that Mark Kinsella and other former Irish stars Damien Duff, Kenny Cunningham, Keith Andrews and Stephen McPhail would be working within the FAI Emerging Talent Programme.

Kinsella will be assisting with the coaching of the national team’s under 21’s side.
