Tyrone U-21 and hurling managers step down

THE Tyrone U-21 football and senior hurling managers will not be seeking re-appointment to their respective posts.

Raymond Munroe and joint manager, Cathal McAnenly and Tom McGill made their decisions following the completion of the season for the Red Hands in both their Ulster and All-Ireland competitions.

The decision also ends the current involvement of their respective backroom teams, which in the case of the U-21s included Brian Dooher and Philip Jordan.

Carrickmore clubman, Raymond Munroe and McAnenly from Errigal Ciaran guided the county minors to provincial and national success in 2008 and 2010. They then managed the U-21s to consecutive Ulster Finals in 2011 and 2012, but were denied success by Cavan on both occasions.

A native of Lavey in Co Derry, Tom McGill managed the Tyrone hurlers to promotion from Division Four in 2011. The highlight of his tenure was winning the Lory Meagher Cup at Croke Park in 2012 and they reached the Nickey Rackard Cup semi-final earlier this summer.

The County Board are to seek nominations from clubs for both positions which are likely to be filled later this year.
