  • # MidwestRadioSport can reveal that 2016 All Ireland under 21 winning manager Mike Solan has been nominated for the post of the Mayo Senior Football manager by Ballaghaderreen GAA club.

    Solan guided Mayo to the first ever Connacht U20 this year with comprehensive victories over Leitrim and Roscommon before edging past Derry in the All Ireland semi-final. Mayo's run ended at the hands of Kildare in the final in Croke Park. Solan's name joins that of Westport GAA manager James Horan in the hat for the position. Horan, it is believed, was nominated by his home club, Ballintubber.

    The Mayo Co Board Executive has yet to announce plans for how to proceed with the appointment of the new manager, making it unclear as to the timeline for when the man to replace Stephen Rochford will be announced.
