GAA job: It’s Kevin or Nigel!

The two men who will face off in the race to become Roscommon senior football team manager are lining up their prospective backroom teams.

  Kevin McStay is rumoured to be planning to bring former Galway hurling boss Anthony Cunningham into the Roscommon management set-up while there is speculation that Nigel Dineen may have former Roscommon star Francie Grehan in line for a role.

  When nominations for the post closed on Wednesday evening, Kevin McStay and Nigel Dineen were the only two candidates who had been proposed.

  A selection committee will now interview both men and one name will be brought back to the County Board for ratification, with the new management likely to be in place within ten days to two weeks.

  McStay’s management team will again include Liam McHale, with speculation that former Roscommon player Vincent Glennon may also be involved.
