County Board PRO Leona Twiss with all the GAA news

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - SPORT -

FOL­LOW­ING a meet­ing of the ex­ec­u­tive last week, the name of James Costello will be put be­fore the County Com­mit­tee for rat­i­fi­ca­tion on Mon­day, Novem­ber 26 as the new Kerry Minor Foot­ball man­ager.

His man­age­ment team will also be rat­i­fied on the night. James has been heav­ily in­volved with the de­vel­op­ment squads over recent years in par­tic­u­lar with the Kerry Un­der 16s.

He has come through the process of coach de­vel­op­ment and is very ex­cited about the chal­lenge ahead. His knowl­edge of last year’s Un­der 16 squad will be of huge ben­e­fit to him as he pro­gresses with the play­ers to minor level.

He has been in­volved in man­age­ment with his club and his dis­trict St Bren­dans Board. We wish James and his man­age­ment team ev­ery suc­cess.
