McGrath to speak on Monday

Pete McGrath has stood down as Fermanagh manager.

Out-going Fermanagh boss Pete McGrath is now expected to give his reasons for stepping down from the Erne hot seat on Monday.

As yet it is unclear at the moment whether that will be in the form of a statement or in a press conference. It is understood McGrath’s decision was made in the wake of an end of season review session between management and players held in the Killyhevlin Hotel on Thursday evening.


Since announcement of his resignation yesterday McGrath has declined to make further comment. Meanwhile county board officials and senior players have been uncontactable. Late on Friday evening, Fermanagh County Committee issued the following statement on foot of McGrath’s resignation.

“We have been informed by Pete McGrath that he is resigning from his position of Fermanagh Senior Football Team Manager.

“Fermanagh County Committee thank Pete and his entire backroom team of the last four years for all their hard work and commitment, and acknowledge the progress made in respect of their work with the county team.

“Pete took over the team in 2014, travelling from Rostrevor, Co Down to fulfill his commitment to the role and during his period as manager worked extremely hard to develop a panel of players to represent the county.

“We wish Pete and all members of his back room team every success for the future.”
