Tom McGlinchey has stepped down after four seasons in charge of the Waterford senior footballers.

His resignation comes after he led Waterford to their first championship victory in seven years over Wexford this summer. The Clyda Rovers clubman also guided the Deise to a rare piece of silverware in 2015 when they won the McGrath Cup. 

"There's a lot of lovely highlights. The McGrath Cup being won in 2015; even though it was a loss, the display against Cork in Munster last year and culminating in the Wexford championship win this summer, and that'll never be taken away from us," he told Beat 102-103. 

The former Tipperary boss' departure leaves Waterford in the market for new senior football and hurling managers after Derek McGrath also ended his five-year tenure as hurling supremo last month.
