Walsh to meet Sligo officials

The Sligo County Board are poised to offer Kevin Walsh another term as manager of the county's senior football team.

The Sligo County Board are poised to offer Kevin Walsh another term as manager of the county's senior football team.

The parties are due to meet this weekend with the expectation that the Yeats County chiefs will ask Walsh to continue in charge after four largely fruitful years in the position.

They may have lost two Connacht finals in three years, but Walsh's side are on the right track judging by their elevation from Division 4 to Division 2 of the Allianz League.

The former Galway All-Ireland winner has also guided the Sligo junior team to Connacht and All-Ireland titles during his managerial spell.

After a delay that has angered some Sligo fans, it nows seems that the County Board are making headway in terms of putting their managers in place for next season.

Tommy Breheny, who led Sligo to a prized Connacht SFC title in 2007, has stepped down as the county's minor football boss, while U21 manager Anthony Brennan is in discussions with the County Board over his future.

As the weeks have gone by since Sligo's Championship exit to Kildare in July, there has been much debate about whether Walsh and his selectors Paul Durcan, Dessie Sloyan and Paul Taylor will opt to continue in their roles.

There is an eagerness for a final decision to be made given that the county football Championships are at an advanced stage.
