Costello is new Kerry minor boss
County Board PRO Leona Twiss with all the GAA news
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.
