Pádraic Joyce Set To Become New Galway Football Manager

Pádraic Joyce Set To Become New Galway Football Manager
By Gary Connaughton

Galway football legend Pádraic Joyce has been offered the senior inter-county management job, it has been reported this afternoon.

The Irish Examiner believe that Joyce is the preferred candidate for the position, with interviews being completed over the past 24 hours. Former Tipperary boss Liam Kearns was the other name in the running, but the selection committee have seemingly opted to stay within the county.

He will be put forward for official ratification.

The Killererin club man has been cutting his managerial teeth with the county's U20 side in recent times. He led the team to a Connacht title this past summer, before ultimately falling short against Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final.

The attractive style of play employed by that side led many to call for Joyce to replace Kevin Walsh with the senior team and that now appears to have come to fruition. He will be joined by John Divilly and John Concannon in his backroom team.

Despite having one of the most talented panels in the country, Galway have flattered to deceive in recent years. They will no doubt hope this appointment will provide the required spark.

It will also come as a bit of good news to a county board who have come under major scrutiny in recent days.
