Evans not seeking the nomination to return to the sheep stealers in 2016.

He was to go before the delegates for rubber-stamping tonight. This really reeks. I'm genuinely shocked.


Thanks to John Evans - not perfect but he did a lot of good things for us these past three years. Deserved better.

You poor soft gomeen
It's all about what your team does in Summer and what we did this Summer wasn't good enough and couldn't be hidden by any amount of League success.

If roscommon hadn't lost to fermanagh but ended up being beaten by Dublin in a similar result as fermanagh, would that have been enough??

Without a doubt. No one would have been brave enough to stage a coup against Evans then.

Hard to know. In some ways he's the brash no nonsense character we need to get everyone pulling together. He'll be able to get the funding needed and he's cute enough to get all the players he needs/wants to play for the County. Also he's a strong enough character to lay down the law to the County Board when it's needed as well. Along with that he seems to be a players man a bit like Coleman maybe.

Managerially though does he have it at the top level in terms of preparation/tactics etc?? I just don't know.

A lot depends on who he can get to come along with him. Will it still be McElkennon? I'd rather see someone else come in I think. My own preference for the Derry job was Tony McEntee. I'd love to see him pull McEntee in along with him if it were possible.

 From Gaelic Life Twitter;;;;
GAELIC Life understands that Jim McCorry is to consider his position as manager of the Down senior football team.

The county executive met with the Mourne boss this week, and McCorry had hoped that a number of his doubts would be allayed. It seems, however, that issues still remain in place.

It is believed that McCorry requested the meeting four weeks ago, and the delay in scheduling it has not helped the siutation.

He is now likely to discuss the matter with his management team and advisors. It is understood that the Down players are very keen on him to remain in charge.

Despite a disappointing championship campaign, including a qualifier defeat to Wexford, McCorry appeared to be on solid ground due to it being his first year in charge, and also, due to the fact that he guided the team into division one.

That belief, however, fell apart when the county management recommended that he be removed from his post last month on a 7-6 score after they held a vote.

In the subsequent county board meeting, the clubs and board voted 23-13 in his favour. The seven who voted against him in the management committee then cast another seven votes against him to bring it to an overall 22-20 figure, ensuring he was retained as manager.

As for now, McCorry remains in charge and he was present at a number of club championship matches in recent weeks as he tries to spot new talent. Dan Gordon and Martin Clarke are expected to return to the county scene for the 2016 season.

Saw that - know his comments after qualifier defeat didn't endear him among the Down support, and am still unsure. Claiming promotion to Div 1 was unexpected but they'll be under pressure to stay there, even with Dan and Marty back on board.
Am sure supporters are looking at Fermanagh and thinking there's a Down manager with a good record and yet he's in Fermanagh. Dunno what the County Board have against Pete but Down's loss looks like Fermanagh's gain.
If Sean Ward continues with the good work at Burren might be an option in another year or two but he would need to carry on with good work being done at present.
Can't see Armagh not reappointing Geezer.
What's the craic in Derry - Baker not considered? Barton? Or are they def looking outside the county - think last non Derry manager was Mullins?

So the County Board got their way after all. Worst case scenario for me is that Down appoint Tony McEntee

Red eye, the last outside man Derry had was Brian Mc Ivor, from Ardboe and Tyrone.
