Antrim name Bradley as new boss

Antrim have named former Derry selector Liam Bradley as their new football manager.

In a statement last night, the county board confirmed Bradley's appointment for three years, subject to an annual review.

The four candidates - Brian White, Frank Delargy, Conor McSherry and Bradley - were interviewed on Wednesday.

White, a former Antrim boss, had been perceived as the favourite and Bradley is seen as a surprise choice. The job is his first in inter-county management.

The first task of the new manager will be to draw up a panel and indications are that four players who withdrew their services following Antrim’s exit from the Ulster Championship — Sean Kelly, Aodhan Gallagher, Terry O’Neill and C J McGourty — may make themselves available again for consideration.

Meanwhile, Ulster Council has agreed to defer Crossmaglen Rangers’ club championship quarter-final against Fermanagh champions St. Patrick’s to November 9.
