Mayo's top official believes Stephen Rochford will stay on as senior football manager for a fourth term.

Rochford has two years left to run on an existing agreement and, speaking to the Western People, County Board chairman Mike Connelly revealed he expects the former Crossmolina player to commit to the cause for 2019.

The futures of trainer Donie Buckley and selector Peter Burke are less certain, however.

"We're giving Stephen the month to review his own situation," Connelly remarked.

"There's a lot of rumours that Donie Buckley isn't going to be there and maybe Peter Burke [too]. We haven't been told this but I presume that if that is happening, that [Stephen's] talking to whoever is remaining in his backroom and planning for next year.

"He was at the All-Ireland U20 semi-final in Carrick on Shannon so I presume he was there for more than one reason."

Is it a bit odd that the CB are putting "rumours" about the backroom team into the public domain? 🤔

Down- would the Mulholland / Poacher ticket be a popular choice?

What is the reason for that? He had them going in the right direction I thought.

McEntee rumoured to be leaving too.

Oh right, hopefully you get a decent replacement as I like Longford.

He appears to have been an incredible waste of money.

It was expected that connerton was stepping down. Mickey Graham will likely be in the frame.

Not a fan?

I hope he takes over Longford because if he doesn't he could well end up in the Cavan job. I know lads who played under him at Club level. Not impressive at all.

Christ no - the complete opposite. Graham is doing great things with Laurel's club, St. Columbas Mullinalaghta, so he'd be unwilling to see him depart. Strange that the Cavan lads not impressed. Seems that prophets are never appreciated in their own lands, to paraphrase the Lord himself.

Mickey's tenure as Cavan minor manager didn't go particularly well, to put it mildly.
