Howe takes the reins at Killyclogher

By Niall Gartland

KIERAN Howe is set to take charge of Killyclogher for a second stint.

The Killyclogher stalwart brings a wealth of experience to the role. He played a major part in their historic first ever Tyrone Senior Championship triumph back in 2003 before managing the team for five years between 2011 and 2015.

In that period, he helped rejuvenate the team, leading Killyclogher to a league title win in 2012 and a senior final appearance in 2015, where they lost narrowly to Trillick.

Elsewhere in Division One, there is speculation that Brackaville’s Stephen Ferguson could take the reins at Coalisland.

Ferguson is most well known for enjoying success at Tattyreagh, and he returned to the club last season to help steer them through rocky waters as they successfully stayed up in Division Two on the last day of the league.

While most of the other positions in Division One have been filled, we await white smoke from Dromore regards the successor of Colly McCullagh. Ryan McMenamin has been linked to the position.

Division Two newcomers Eskra have appointed Dromore man Niall Colton to the role, succeeding Gerry Donnelly. Enda Kilpatrick has stepped down as Killeeshil boss, so they’ve started the search for a new manager, while Kildress are also on the look out as Roger Keenan and Tony Scullion, who led the club to the 2020 Junior Championship title, have stepped aside.

Paddy Campbell is staying on as manager as Owen Roes having led them to a place in the Intermediate final in 2021.

Division Three side Urney have also made a recent appointment. Ederney clubmen Aiden Gilroy and Enda Ferris have filled the position vacated by Dougie Corbett. Gilroy led Derrylin to the delayed 2020 Junior Championship in Fermanagh and also managed the county’s u-17s last year.
