Mike Solan is expected to remain on as Mayo U20 manager after opting out of the race to become the county's senior manager.

Solan's surprise withdrawal on Friday has paved the way for the only other candidate, James Horan, to return to the role he previously held for four seasons, during which he guided Mayo to All-Ireland final appearances in 2012 and '13.

It remains to be seen if Solan will be part of Horan's backroom team, the make-up of which should become clearer when the Ballintubber man's name will be put forward for ratification at a county board meeting this Thursday night.
