Sean Deane from Breaffy GAA has tonight been appointed as the new Mayo U17 Football manager.
Sean's backroom team will consist of former Mayo captain Gary Ruane, Shane Conway, Shane McCann & Danny O'Toole.
He has been appointed on a three-year term with a review after each year.
It was a highly competitive process with five candidates in the running for the position.
Two candidates pulled out before the interview process due to difficulties in putting backroom teams in place.
Deane is a former Mayo under-16 manager who has also served as an underage and senior coach with Breaffy for a number of years.
The Mayo minors are due to begin their Connacht championship campaign with a quarter-final against Roscommon on Friday, April 2nd.
