New Donegal Club Managers

(Oldest Posts First)

Getting to that time of year when there is musical chairs bainisteoir wise in the Donegal club scene. Any big departures or arrivals?

Who will replace Regan in Glenties?
Will Maxi stay another year in Gweedore?
Are the McHughs taking over (officially) in Kilcar?
Kavanagh surely staying on in OPD?

The only new management team I know of so far is in Malin. That was tied up a few weeks back so they must be planning a big 2022.

Milford looking for a new Manager also, great group of young players in that area , but discipline seems to be a problem there so an outside Manager might be necessary to get best out of a talented group.

Seems to be the case in a lot of clubs Jack. Players usually buck up with an outside manager and act up with one of their own!

Danny O'Donnell did great work when he was there so id imagine they will be looking for something similar.

I see Milford have gone for Pauric Curley, not high profile but one of their own.

The Sinclair brothers taking over in Four Masters having come in mid way through the season this year. Big pressure on them to get out of Division 3 in 2022.

A lot of jobs being advertised in the past while.

Two big announcements immanent with Kilcar and Glenties deadlines having passed. The replayed 2020 final could be the first game for the new management teams.

Hearing that Martin and Mark McHugh teaming up in Towney with a high profile trainer.
