Rochford confirmed as Mayo manager


Mayo have a new senior football manager following Stephen Rochford's appointment on a three-year basis.

Rochford's appointment was ratified at a meeting of the Mayo County Board on Monday night with the Crossmolina man named as the successor to Pat Holmes and Noel Connelly.

Although he has been handed an initial three-year term, his position will be reviewed annually.

Rochford, who guided Corofin to the All-Ireland Club Championship, will be joined by former Armagh and Crossmaglen All-Ireland winner Tony McEntee, outgoing coach Donie Buckley and Sean Carey.

"Stephen Rochford has been officially ratified as Manager of the Mayo Senior Football Team for an initial 3 Year Term reviewed annually! #gaa," Mayo GAA tweeted on Monday evening.

Holmes and Connelly stepped down from their role following a vote of no confidence.
