Gormley takes charge at St Molaise Gaels

Willie Gormley is set to take charge of St Molaise Gaels’ senior footballers next season.

The Bunninadden native, who guided Tubbercurry to a Senior Championship win in 2014, has since managed both IT Sligo’s senior team, and Bundoran in Donegal.

The Grange-based club won the intermediate title in 2016, and retained their senior status in the season just finished.

Former Leitrim intercounty footballer Gareth Phelan will be part of Gormley’s backroom team, along with James Watters and Philip Lang.

Mick McElligott will remain on as junior team manager, having guided the club to the Junior B Championship title in 2017.

Gaels are the second Sligo club to confirm their senior team manager for next season, following confirmation last week that Padraig McGourty will take charge of Coolaney/Mullinabreena for 2018.
