Galway ladies manager Stephen Glennon has stepped down from his post after two seasons in charge.

Glennon, who was appointed in November 2016, released a lengthy statement this morning confirming the news, citing family, work and college commitments as part of the reason for him stepping down.

The Tribe boss steered the team back-to-back Connacht titles during his tenure and also oversaw Galway’s All-Ireland U21 victory last November.

“After a great deal of consideration, it is with regret that I have decided not to continue for a third year as Galway senior ladies football manager,” his statement begins.

“It is a decision I have not come to lightly but, unfortunately, I am unable to give the role – and these magnificent bunch of players – the 100% commitment and dedication they deserve in 2019.

“This decision I cannot subscribe to any one reason but to many – family, work and college, among them.”
