Pair out of Galway job contention

Two of the favourites for the vacant Galway football manager's post have been ruled out of contention.

Former Cork boss Billy Morgan and former Limerick and Laois manager Liam Kearns were both regarded as leading contenders for the post vacated by Joe Kernan.

But the Galway football board has decided to confine the race to the five individuals nominated by clubs.

Former Westmeath boss Tomas O Flatharta, former Mayo midfielder Pat Fallon, Matt Duggan, and Pete Warren - a selector with John O'Mahony when Galway won the 1998 and 2001 All-Ireland titles - are in the running.
