Graham looks set to remain in Breffni hotseat

FORMER attacking ace Mickey Graham looks set to remain as Cavan senior manager.

The Cavan Gaels man has completed his fourth season at the helm, steering them to Ulster glory in 2020.

Graham was appointed for the 2019 season after leading Longford side Mullinalaghta to back to back titles.

Cavan found themselves back in Division Four last season, but bounced back as champions with newcomer Paddy Lynch giving them an another dimension up front.

Their season ended in disappointment in the final of the inaugural Tailteann Cup, losing to Westmeath from a position of strength midway through the second half,

Graham expressed a need of relegation on his position after the game, but it is expected to be in charge for a fifth season.

Elsewhere in Ulster, Donegal, Down and Monaghan are still in search of a new manager after Declan Bonner, James McCartan and Seamus ‘Banty’ McEnaney called time on their tenures.

The most recent county in search of a new manager is Roscommon after Anthony Cunningham stepped down yesterday.

The Rossies were promoted to Division One as champions after their League final win over Galway.

Monaghan could be in hot water after being found in breach of sponsorship guidelines.

A motion was approved last year to allow counties to have additional sponsor loges on the sleeves of playing and replica jerseys, as means of increasing commercial revenue.

The GAA were informed that the Farney County were in breach of a sponsor logo exceeding permitted dimensions.

The GAA’s Official Guide, Rule 1.18 (f), states that the “total area” of the sponsor’s branding shall not exceed an area of 350 square centimetres.

Additional branding on other area jerseys shall be allowed as per specifications approved by Central Council.

The rule also states that: “Any unit or team in breach of this Rule shall be liable to disqualification andor loss of expenses, and an individual(s) to a suspension of not less than 24 weeks or to expulsion.”
