Laois Ladies on the lookout for new manager as Gibson departs

For the second year in a row, the Laois Ladies are searching for a new manager following the departure of David Gibson after just one term.

Kildare native Gibson inherited a Laois team that, under Kevin Doogue, had won the Leinster Intermediate title in 2018.

However, a number of players stepped away this year from that team and a very young Laois side struggled as a result.

They failed to win a game in the league and were relegated to Division 3 and the championship didn’t go much better.

They fell to Meath in the quarter final of the Leinster championship and the All-Ireland series saw defeats to Wexford and Clare.

That sent Laois into a relegation playoff with Limerick where they managed to end a miserable year on a high note with a win to retain their Intermediate status.

But Gibson has since resigned and the search is now underway to replace him.

Taking to Facebook, Laois LGFA confirmed they are searching for a number of new management positions.

They said: “Laois Ladies have a number of management vacancies available for the upcoming football year. Under 14, Under 16, Minor and Intermediate

“If you wish to apply for any of above positions, please email your CV to chairperson.laois@lgfa.ie

“Closing date is Monday September 16 2019.”
