The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT -

JAMES Costello of St Pats, Blen­nerville has been ap­pointed as Peter Keane’s suc­ces­sor as Kerry mi­nor foot­ball team man­ager, sub­ject to rat­i­fi­ca­tion at the next meet­ing of the Kerry GAA County Com­mit­tee.

Af­ter be­ing in­volved in man­age­ment with his club and St Bren­dan’s in the county cham­pi­onship, Costello has more re­cently been in­volved in the Kerry De­vel­op­ment Squad sys­tem with Kerry North.

He was in­volved in the cur­tain-raiser to the re­cent county SFC fi­nal, which saw a show­case game in­volv­ing play­ers from the Un­der-16 De­vel­op­ment Squads split in Kerry ‘Green’ and Kerry ‘Gold’ sides.

Costello suc­ceeds new se­nior man­ager Peter Keane who fin­ished off his three-year spell with the Mi­nors by en­sur­ing a fifth con­sec­u­tive ti­tle at Mi­nor level af­ter the ini­tial suc­cesses un­der Jack O’Con­nor in 2014 and 2015.

It is ex­pected that Costello’s back­room team will be an­nounced be­fore the Novem­ber 26 meet­ing where his nom­i­na­tion will be of­fi­cially rat­i­fied.
