Reilly the latest mover on the managerial merry-go-round
The managerial not so merry-go-round continues with some club's losing some big names including Trim. The shock news that emerged over the weekend was that Kevin Reilly was stepping down from the position of manager of the club's senior football team.
That certainly caught many observers of the local GAA team by surprise. The former Meath and Navan O'Mahonys player had guided the Reds to an IFC title last year with the team producing some daring, enterprising football along the way. This year Trim pushed on to reach the All-Ireland Club IFC showdown in Croke Park where they lost to Derry side Steelstown and also made it out of their group in the SFC.
It was expected that Trim would be serious contenders to win the Keegan Cup next year so it was all the more startling when the news broke that Reilly was moving on.
Another manager who has moved on is Micheal McDermott. The Cavan man, who was once in charge of Clare, has parted company with Wolfe Tones - and no doubt there are many in that club who will be sorry to see him go. He transformed the Tones last year and guided them to the Keegan Cup final where they defeated Dunboyne. He was also one of the candidates in the hunt for the Meath job before Colm O'Rourke was appointed.
David Hosie, who was with St Ultan's, is understood to be in the running to take up the managerial reigns at Navan O'Mahonys. Bective also look to be hooking up with David Nolan, the former Wolfe Tones goalkeeper. Nolan also managed the Blackwater team in the Regional FC but they didn't make it beyond the group phase.
There was also some speculation that David Brady could be moving from Ratoath following Saturday evening's loss to The Downs in Croke Park but that has to be confirmed at the time of writing.
