Laois Camogie begin search for a new intermediate manager

Laois Camogie team

Laois Camogie are currently seeking applications for a new intermediate county manager.

Offaly native Donal Franks managed the team last year but Laois Camogie county board are now inviting applications for the position.

Franks, who previously managed Westmeath kingpins Clonkill, Birr, Naas, Abbeyleix, and Round Towers in Dublin, enjoyed a decent year in charge.

They retained their Division 2 status by defeating Antrim in their last league game and reached the Leinster senior semi final where they lost out to Offaly.

In the All-Ireland Intermediate series, Laois defeated Derry, Carlow and Wexford but losses to Down and Tipperary saw them miss out on a semi-final place by a solitary point.

Laois Camogie are looking to make an appointment for the 2020 season.

They say: “The ideal applicant should have the following attributes

  • A track record in managing club and/or county level
  • Posses player management, organisational and interpersonal skills including a willingness to provide player feedback, personal training plans and an ability to implement injury protocols
  • Be highly motivated and ambitious to succeed while maintaining high levels of professionalism.
  • Willing to work in partnership with County Board Officers, clubs and parents.
  • Work within the guidelines of the Camogie Association and the code of ethics and good practices for young players
  • A knowledge of Laois club players and intercounty teams would be an advantage

“A detailed application should be sent to secretary.laois@camogie.ie containing personal details, qualifications/certificates, details of management experience, proposed backroom plan and training plan for the year.

“Applications need to be in before the deadline of the October 18 as applications after that will not be considered.”
