Grimley installed as Armagh boss

Paul Grimley has been confirmed as the new manager of Armagh after receiving the unanimous support of clubs in the county.

Grimley, who has a wealth of experience in the Armagh set up after serving as assistant to former managers Paddy O’Rourke and Joe Kernan’s All Ireland title winning 2002 side, was appointed after last night’s county board meeting.

Grimley enjoyed backroom experience with Cavan, Kildare, Monaghan and Meath in recent years and despite media speculation that former Armagh captain Kieran McGeeney was contemplating the hot seat, Grimley was appointed and indicated that he would take on the role in a caretaker capacity until McGeeney or one of the other 2002 All Ireland heroes was ready to step up to one of the most coveted position in football.

A statement to confirm the appointment read, “Coiste Chontae Ard Mhacha wish to announce the appointment of Paul Grimley as manager of the senior football team which was unanimously agreed at their meeting held in Morgan Athletic Grounds on Thursday 26th July.

“Brendan Hughes has been appointed as assistant. The county board would like to express our best wishes to them as they begin their work and hope they achieve the success the county and its supporters yearn for.”
