Former Cork senior manager Jimmy Barry-Murphy is expected to land the role of the Rebels' U-21 hurling boss, following a meeting of the Cork County Board at Pairc Ui Chaoimh tonight.

Barry-Murphy guided Cork to Liam McCarthy success in 1999 and in recent years has managed St Finbarr's in the Cork Senior Hurling Championship.

The U-21 vacancy comes after current manager John Considine did not want his name put forward for the position for the coming year, following a two-year term.

It is anticipated that Considine will be named as Cork's new minor manager, with the selection committee completed by Aghada's Ronan Dwane, Pat Mulcahy of Newtownshandrum and a member of the outgoing selectors.

Cork crashed out of the Munster U-21 Hurling Championship last month after a 2-22 to 0-25 extra-time defeat to Tipperary at the quarter-final stage.

Barry-Murphy is expected to have former senior selectors, Teddy McCarthy, Ger Fitzgerald and John Mortell, at his disposal.

Amongst those charged with the role of appointing the new managers are Cork Co board chairman Jerry O'Sullivan, secretary Frank Murphy, Denis Walsh, Pat Horgan of Midleton, Michael Byrne of Ballyhea and Peter Hogan, the vice-chairman of the minor board.
