Harbinson steps down as Antrim manager

IT has been confirmed this morning that Lenny Harbinson has decided to step aside as Antrim senior intercounty manager after three years in charge.

Speaking in the immediate aftermath of his side’s Ulster Championship quarter-final defeat to Cavan on Saturday, Harbinson said he wasn’t sure about staying on, and he’s now officially made the decision to vacate the position.

Antrim won one championship match during his tenure – a round one qualifier defeat over Louth last year – and they finished third in Division Four in each of his years in charge.

The Antrim GAA statement read: “Lenny Harbinson informed Antrim county board today that he did not wish to extend his three year contract as Antrim Senior Football manger. Lenny has been a good servant of Antrim GAA both as a player and a manager , and we would like to put on record our gratitude to Lenny and his management team for all the hard work put in over the last three years with Antrim Senior Football squad. We wish them all the best in the future. “
