NEW DONEGAL MANAGER TO BE NAMED ON MONDAY

first_imgWill Rory Gallagher be named as the new manager of the Donegal GAA Senior team next week?The successor to Jim McGuinness is set to be unveiled early next by the Donegal County Board.The County Board have scheduled a meeting for next Monday, and it’s expected that representatives on the board will announce who is the new Donegal Senior team manager.Rory Gallagher remains the hot favourite with the bookies. The former assistant to Jim McGuinness knows many of the current squad very well, and seems the obvious replacement.However, there is speculation that a lack of experience in managing a team could count against Gallagher.His roles to date have seen the Fermanagh man assistant to Jim McGuinness with the Senior side, and assistant to Maxi Curran with the U21 team.He was joint-manager in Kilcar this year alongside John McNulty. It has also emerged that Paddy Carr could also be in with a strong chance of getting the vacant position.He has a wealth of club and inter-county experience and is seen as a strong candidate for the position.Anthony Harkin, and Cathal Corey are the other two candidates that have applied for the role of Donegal Senior team manager, but neither are likely to get the nod. NEW DONEGAL MANAGER TO BE NAMED ON MONDAY was last modified: October 30th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGAAJim McGuinnessManagernewsRory GallagherSportSuccessorlast_img read more
