Wicklow - New football manager

Replying To Pat Mustard:  "Hah stop will you. Paul Garrigan is th manager and will be ratified probably not til november mind you.

The chairman will make a point of thanking the commitee for their hard work which is a laugh when they were told what to come up with.

I can assure you no interviews will take place sire the commitee itself has not even met FACT and will not be meeting. Its all a sham process with yes men."

Best wishes to John Evans on his appointment as our senior county manager. We all know his proven pedigree and all genuine Wicklow gaels are thrilled and honoured that he has taken up the post. Now that we have John in charge it is up to all the clubs ,players and supporters to get behind him .Success wont happen overnight so everyone will need to be patient but his initial target to get out of division 4 is what every supporter craves for. The appointment will shorten the winter as we look forward to 2018.
I see he will work with an internal team. Can any poster tell me how the selectors are chosen. Are they put forward by clubs,or nominated at a county board meeting ,or is there some other selection process?

Mike Hassett must be in the frame for the backroom? Both from Laune Rangers.

As far as I know it's up to the manager to find and select his own selectors, Im sure if needed he could ask county board for help, I could be wrong but I think that's how it's done.

Evans is a Hero in Roscommon lads the man was loved by fans and every single player that played under him. Sadly 4 or 5 pushed him over here or he would still be with us. A massive appointment for Wicklow and best of luck to John and yourselves under his guideance.
Seen a few comments that players are not good enough in wicklow at the minute even still he will get the best outt of them and put the structures in place for underage and the years ahead.

Great to see the new manager in Aughrim at the weekend,
Hopefully this manager realises there are more games than just the ones the big senior clubs are involved in.

Out of the 22 players given championship debuts
over 10 are not from Snr clubs. There was always a member of his back room team at all championship games.
