Sligo County board yesterday confirmed the management teams for its Intercounty Senior and U20 football squads for 2023.
Tony McEntee who was appointed for a three-year term in November 2020 will continue as senior football manager.
Tony will be joined again by Joe Keane.
Easkey’s Noel McGuire and goalkeeping coach Paul Durcan from Drumcliffe-Rosses Point will be selectors with Sean Boyle – Sligo GAA’s Athletic Performance Coach – leading on Strength & Conditioning.
It was agreed also to create an option of a possible further year to be triggered on review at the end of next season.
Paul Henry from Curry who led the management team when Sligo won the Connacht Minor Championship in 2021 will manage the U20 team for 2023.
Paul will be supported by Enda Mitchell (Coolera-Strandhill), Colm McGee (Tubbercurry), Ross Donovan (Eastern Harps), JP Carden (Enniscrone-Kilglass) and Pat Kilcoyne (Tubbercurry).
That team will also be responsible for the U20 team for the 2024 championship season.
Paul and his team will also continue to oversee the work that he has begun this year on bridging the gap for younger players between County U17 and U20 who are not part of the U20 Football panel.
Further appointments will be made to the coaching and support team next year to maintain this group.
