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.”
