FERMANAGH will begin the search for a new u-17 football manager after outgoing duo Raymond Johnston and Tony Collins informed the County Board of their decision to step down.
The former county players cited “”personal commitments” as their reason for not continuing in the role for 2023.
“We would like to thank Tony and Raymond and their backroom team for their commitment to the u-17 minor team and wish them well,” read a statement from Fermanagh GAA.
“The process to appoint a county u-17 minor team manager will commence in line with the standard process of allowing the clubs and management committee to nominate suitable manager(s).”
Fermanagh GAA also rubber stamped their senior football and hurling management teams at Monday’s August meeting.
Joe Baldwin (hurling) and Kieran Donnelly (football) will remain in charge, while Maurice McLaughlin stays on board with the u-20 footballers.
The annual review with u-17 and u-20 hurling teams didn’t take place due to “unforeseen circumstances” in advance of the meeting. Details will presented at “a future” meeting of the County Committee.
