Search for Mi­nor team man­ager is un­der­way

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT - BY PAUL BRENNAN

THE search is on for a new Kerry mi­nor foot­ball team man­ager af­ter the de­par­ture of Peter Keane to man­age the se­nior team.

Keane’s rat­i­fi­ca­tion as Ea­monn Fitz­mau­rice’s suc­ces­sor as se­nior foot­ball team man­ager leaves a va­cancy for the mi­nor team man­ager post, with the county com­mit­tee ex­ec­u­tive given per­mis­sion to ap­point a new man­ager, which will be ret­ro­spec­tively rat­i­fied by the club del­e­gates in late No­vem­ber.

Club del­e­gates at Mon­day night’s county com­mit­tee meet­ing in Tralee were in­vited to for­ward pro­pos­als and opin­ions as to who might re­place Keane, but the fi­nal de­ci­sion will be made by the county com­mit­tee ex­ec­u­tive, headed up by county com­mit­tee chair­man Tim Mur­phy.

While there are no clear favourites for the job at this stage for­mer Kerry play­ers like Johnny Crow­ley and De­clan O’Sul­li­van are be­ing spo­ken about in con­nec­tion with the po­si­tion.

Oth­ers such as Gary McGrath and Sea­mus Moyni­han have also been spo­ken of as po­ten­tial mi­nor team man­agers, while Diar­muid Mur­phy is an­other.
