Former Sligo footballer and St Vincent’s All-Ireland club winner Luke Bree has been added to Leitrim’s backroom team for the 2023 season.

Bree served as a coach under Anthony Cunningham in Roscommon this past season and is now set to work under Andy Moran during the former Mayo star’s second year in charge of Leitrim, replacing James Glancy after the latter linked up with Paddy Christie in Longford.

Part of St Vincent’s All-Ireland club success over Castlebar Mitchels in 2014, Bree played at senior inter-county level for Sligo and is currently based in the Yeats County as a PE teacher.

"Leitrim GAA, at its most recent Management Committee Meeting, approved the appointment of Luke Bree as selector/coach to the Leitrim Senior Football Team for the 2023 season,” Leitrim GAA said in a statement on Wednesday morning.

"Luke previously worked as a coach and selector with the Roscommon Senior Footballers in 2022. Previously he was a head coach with the St. Vincent’s Senior Footballers in Dublin, and was a large part of the club’s operation over a ten-year period, playing on the 2014 All-Ireland Club Championship winning team. He is a former Sligo Senior Footballer and is currently a PE teacher based in his native county.

"Luke joins Andy Moran, Mike Solan and Barry McWeeney in directly overseeing the fortunes of our Senior Footballers into the 2023 season and we welcome him aboard."
