McKeever steps down as minor manager

The Orchard County are on the lookout for a new minor manager as Ciaran McKeever has stepped down from the role.

McKeever, who also wears the bainisteoir bib for Mayobridge, was appointed in 2018 and oversaw two Ulster Championship campaigns while leading the under 17s.

The minors were unfortunate to loss out to Derry in the opening round of the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

Armagh did record a win over Antrim in the backdoor of 2019, before Donegal halted their run in a ding-dong battle.

Last seasons championship took a knockout form and a second half Derry goal left Armagh 1-7 to 0-8 behind at full time.

The former Orchard captain was added to Kieran McGeeney’s management team recently, so his departure from the minor set up may have been expected.
