Bonner takes charge of Erne Gaels

By Michael McMullan

FORMER Donegal All-Ireland winner and manager Declan Bonner has been appointed as the new manager of Fermanagh side Erne Gaels.

Bonner was the front runner for the post with Donegal player Paul Brennan as part of his management ticket.

The Gaels were in search of a manager after Seamus Ryder stepped down at the end of last season following three years in charge.

After winning the intermediate title in 2021, the Beleek based club lost the last two senior finals at the hands of Enniskillen Gaels and Derrygonnelly.

Bonner, who won Ulster minor, u-21 and senior titles as manager of Donegal, led his native Na Rossa to the Donegal Junior Championship title last year.

He was handed a 12-week suspension following a red card issued in their Ulster exit at the hands of Lisnaskea.

Elsewhere, former Derry defender Tony Scullion and his Ulster GAA colleague Roger Keenan have taken over Tyrone club Glenelly for the 2024 season.

Glenelly finished mid-table in Division Three last season and were pipped by Drumragh by a point in the championship.
