Wexford manager Seamus 'Banty' McEnaney will not make a decision on his future until the end of August.

The Monaghan native revealed that he would take some time out to consider his future as Wexford senior football manager following their exit from the All-Ireland SFC.

The former Meath manager stated at the time that the travelling from Monaghan to Wexford twice or three times weekly was taking its toll. 

However, he has met the players on an individual basis and has opted not to make a decision on his future for another couple of weeks at least.

Speaking to the Wexford People, he said: "Look it's a horrendous journey, it's a journey that's unsustainable, the mileage covered from home to games and training, that has to be considered.

"I have a talks process to go through. This is a big decision, not just for me, but also the players, as players futures are at stake, I've spent the last couple of weeks away from the game contemplating as this is a hugely important decision, for me, the players and the county board. I'm not going to run into a decision."

He added: "I will be making a decision on my future by the end of August. I will have to satisfy myself before making the next move."
