Arles-Killeen head across the border for new football manager

Arles-Killeen have a new manager
Donie Kingston

Arles-Killeen will have a Kildare man at the helm of their senior football team for this season.

Ballyroan-Abbey’s Eoin Kearns stepped down from the role last year after he was appointed as a selector with the Laois senior footballers.

The search was on from then to find his successor and the committee have chosen North Kildare native Gay Campbell.

The Raheens GAA clubman comes to Killeen after a stint with the Kildare minor footballers.

He was a selector on the Kildare team in 2016 which defeated Mark Rooney’s Laois in the Leinster final.

He then took over the team as manager last year but was knocked out in the Leinster semi final by Dublin – which was the first time Kildare had not reached the provincial decider since 2012.

Elsewhere, Clonaslee St Manman’s have confirmed their manager for the season ahead.

Jer Glavin, who was in charge of the side last year, is back for a second stint for the team who will compete once again as a Gaels outfit in the championship with Annanough.
