Kildare football legend steps into management for Maynooth University

Kildare football legend Johnny Doyle has been confirmed as the Sigerson football manager of Maynooth University senior football squad for the 2015/16 season.

Noel Mooney will join Doyle as selector, while the rest of his backroom team will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Doyle, who is a 2010 All-Star winner expressed his excitement and interest in his new position. 

“I’m looking forward to it. I suppose it’s not my first real jump into management, I was involved with Na Fianna (local amalgamation) underage but this is the highest level I will have been involved in.

“[I’m] looking forward to it, lots of learning, and I’m looking forward to getting in and getting to know the lads.

“It’s going to be a learning curve for me for the first couple of weeks to see what makes them tick and what sort of characters they are but I’m looking forward to that.”
