Three teams competing in Division 1A have new management teams in place ahead of the upcoming 2023 league campaign.
Armagh Harps: Pascal Canavan
The former Tyrone footballer has taken over the reigning Division 1A league champions Armagh Harps. Canavan spent the last couple of years in charge of Monaghan club Truagh.
He took Truagh to the 2021 SFC final where they lost out to Scotstown. He also guided his native club Errigal Ciaran to Tyrone SFC finals in 2017 and 2019, losing both.
Canavan has some experience of Armagh club football, having took Ballymacnab to the championship semi-finals in 2015.
Ballymacnab: Barry Dillon
Dillon is back for a second year in charge of Ballymacnab, having guided them to the Division 1B title last season.
The Nab were relegated from the top tier in 2021 but bounced back at the first time of asking.
Their 2022 championship run ended at the quarter-final stage when they lost to Maghery by one-point after extra time.
Clann Eireann: Ruairi Lavery
Lavery took over from Tommy Coleman the year after the Lurgan men captured the Gerry Fegan Cup.
Clann Eireann had a mixed 2022 but did enough to secure their status in Division 1A.
Their championship title defence didn’t go to plan however as they were knocked out by Mullaghbawn in the first round.
Crossmaglen: Anthony Cunningham
Crossmaglen got back on top in Armagh last season, with Stephen Kernan taking his team to the promised land.
Kernan has since stepped down and has been replaced by former Crossmaglen All-Ireland winning captain Anthony Cunningham.
The main target for Cross in 2023 will be to retain their championship title and they remain the team to beat.
Granemore: Niall McAleenan
Granemore enjoyed a hugely successful season in 2022, making their first ever appearance in the SFC final.
McAleenan is back for a second season in charge and will be aiming for a better start to the league campaign.
Last year Granemore lost their first five league games but turned it around to remain in the top tier.
Killeavy: Tommy Coleman
Former Clann Eireann manager Tommy Coleman will be back on the sidelines this year in charge of Killeavy.
Coleman took Clann Eireann to the SFC title in 2021 before stepping aside and taking a year out last season.
Killeavy are one of the up-and-coming teams in the county and will have their eyes on silverware in 2023.
Madden: Mickey Grimley
Grimley returns to the Madden hotseat and similar to Killeavy, they are a young team hoping to make the breakthrough.
Madden, with Ryan Mellon involved in a coaching capacity, finished fourth in Division 1A last season.
Killeavy ended their championship challenge last season, after their preliminary round win over Grange.
Mullaghbawn: Peter McDonnell
Experienced manager Peter McDonnell will once again lead his native club Mullaghbawn for the season ahead.
McDonnell won a SFC with Mullaghbawn in 1995 and was the last Armagh manager to win Ulster back in 2008.
Mullaghbawn earned promotion to the topflight by finishing second behind Ballymacnab in Division 1B last season.
