Monday Lunch Sport: Dublin County Board Says No Decision Yet on Jim Gavin Replacement ; Interim FAI CEO Withdraws from the Role

: 12/02/2019 - 12:45

The Dublin County Board chairman says no decision has yet been made on a replacement for Jim Gavin.

Gavin stepped aside as senior football manager on Saturday after leading the county to five successive All-Irelands.

Reports emerged this morning that 2011 All-Ireland-winning manager Pat Gilroy had first refusal to take the reigns once more.

The FAI has issued a statement saying it notes with "great regret" the decision of John Foley withdraw from his new role as interim CEO.

It's been confirmed the former Athletics Ireland Chief Executive will not be taking up the role, which he was due to start today.

Foley had previously agreed to replace Noel Mooney as the FAI's interim chief.

Watford could appoint a new head coach as early as today.

The Premier League's bottom team sacked Quique Sanchez Flores yesterday.

Chris Hughton and Paul Clement have been linked with the job.

Former All Blacks head coach Steve Hansen has confirmed his next move in management will be in Japan.

The 60-year-old has accepted a consulting job with Top League team Toyota Verblitz.

Hansen led New Zealand to the 2015 World Cup, before a third-place finish at this year's tournament.

Leixlip’s Leah Doyle won double honours over the weekend off the court.

On Friday night, she received the Kildare Handball Player of the Year award at the Kildare GAA Awards night.  

That was followed over the weekend, with her being presented, in Croke Park, with the Young Female Handballer of the Year award.

Reminder to join Paul Power this evening from 6.30 for Kildare Scoreboard.

The programme will review Kildare hurlers Keogh Cup defeat by Offaly and hearing from manager David Heraty.

We’ll, also, have an interview with new Kildare football manager Jack O’Connor laying out his plans for the season.
