McGeeney confirms Clarke exit


Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney has confirmed that Jamie Clarke will not be part of his panel for 2016.

Clarke spent the second half of last year in the United States, leaving Ireland in the wake of Armagh's defeat to Galway in the All-Ireland qualifiers, and he recently intimated that he would be returning to America this year.

The returned to the Crossmaglen team for the latter stages of the Ulster Club Championship and is committed to remaining with the club until their All-Ireland club campaign ends.

"He has indicated that he is done for the year. He will probably go back to the United States after the team's involvement in the All-Ireland Club series is finished," McGeeney confirmed.

"I was chatting to him and this is what he indicated to me."

While Clarke has all but ruled himself out of the Orchard panel, his Crossmaglen team-mates Tony Kernan and James Morgan are expected to make themselves available for the season.

"Tony Kernan has just got married so we have to let him settle into that," McGeeney is quoted as saying in the Irish Independent. "James Morgan will be playing with the club but he will be back with us when their run is ended."
