Shine to take over minors

12 October 2000
Former Roscommon senior football supremo Donie Shine is expected to be appointed as county minor manager for 2001 at next Monday’s Minor Board meeting.

Shine has been out of the limelight since he resigned as senior manager in 1997 after Roscommon’s shock championship defeat to Sligo. Meanwhile, it is also expected that Frank Grehan will be re-appointed as under 21 manager for the coming season. He is likely to be assisted once again by Seamus Maher and Seamus Hayden.
