Only one Division 2B team have the same management team in place as last season, with seven new bosses coming in.
Annaghmore: Dessie McCormack
Dessie McCormack is back in charge of Annaghmore as they compete in Division 2B this season.
McCormack over saw Annaghmore’s rise to senior level when they were crowned Junior champions in 2013.
Annaghmore suffered relegation under Declan Fox last season and will compete in Division 2B.
Belleek: Shane Quinn
Following their Junior Championship success in 2021, Belleek proved their worth in Division 2B last season.
They were knocking on the door of promotion last year and will hope to have a similar season in 2023.
Former player Shane Quinn takes over, replacing Garreth Thornton who will lead Pearse Og this year.
Cross II: Peter McMahon
Peter McMahon takes charge of Crossmaglen IIs, replacing the outgoing Michael McConville at the helm.
McMahon will be joined by Maria O’Donnell, Aidan Short and Paul McKeown in his management team.
The Rangers were solid in Division 2B last season and will hope to have another good campaign.
Derrynoose: Paul Hagan
2022 Junior champions Derrynoose have a new man at the helm leading into their first since at Intermediate level.
Paul Hagan takes over from Paul Doyle and Hagan led St Michael’s Newtown to a Division 3B title in 2021.
Hagan was also involved in a coaching capacity with the Armagh minors a couple of years ago.
Forkhill: Mark McCann
McCann is back in charge of Forkhill and will once again be joined by Karl O’Connor on the sideline.
The 2020 Junior Championship winners just avoided the drop last year and that will be the main objective once again in 2023.
Forkhill were knocked out of the IFC in the first-round last season, losing to Belleek after a replay.
Keady: Simon McGeary
After spending the last few seasons in charge of Drumragh Sarsfields in Tyrone, McGeary has taken over Keady.
McGeary guided the Tyrone club to the JFC final in his first season in 2020 but lost out to Kildress. He was involved in the Armagh minor set up for a number of years.
Keady just avoided the drop to Junior football last season, and they’ll be aiming to push on in 2023.
Middletown: Paddy McArdle
Paddy McArdle will lead the Middletown men this season, taking over from last year’s boss Paul Donohoe.
Middletown are back up competing at Intermediate level having earned promotion from Division 3 last year.
They finished second behind Derrynoose in the league and lost to the same opposition in the JFC semi-final.
Whitecross: Phelim McGuinness
Phelim McGuinness takes charge of Whitecross, taking over from last year’s manager Ruadhri Quinn.
McGuinness was part of Quinn’s management team, so he has seamlessly moved into the hotseat.
Whitecross were relegated from Division 2A after a tough league campaign in 2022 and will hope to offer a better showing this year.
