Kieran McGeeney will remain on as Armagh football manager having been given the full backing of his county board.

The 2002 All-Ireland winning captain's five-year term ended with a gut-wrenching All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Round 3 defeat to Mayo and tonight he was ratified for a further two year extension.

McGeeney guided the Orchard County to their first Ulster SFC win in five years at the expense of neighbours Down in May before losing the provincial semi-final to Cavan after a replay. 

Armagh bounced back to record a fine win over last year's All-Ireland SFC semi-finalists Monaghan in the All-Ireland Qualifiers before succumbing to Mayo by a point in Castlebar at the of June.
