Gerry Moane handed new three-year term in charge of Tyrone seniors

Tyrone Ladies GFA have reappointed senior manager Gerry Moane, with the Brookboro man ratified for a new three-year term by the county board on Tuesday night. The new contract will take Moane to seven years in the Tyrone hotseat, in this his second term in charge.

Moane is set to confirm his backroom team in the coming days but it’s expected there will be a strong link between the new minor management team headed by Mark Doran and the senior management. Doran had joined Moane’s backroom team last year with the view to developing players for the senior squad.

Since taking over the role for a second time in early 2016, Gerry guided Tyrone to three Ulster intermediate titles, back to back TG4 All-Ireland Final appearances in 2017 and 2018, with the latter appearance resulting in silverware and a return to the senior grade.

A positive 2019 campaign saw Tyrone advance to the quarter-finals of the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship, where they lost out to Cork. The Red Hands will play Senior Championship football again in 2020.

Speaking about the appointment, County Chairperson Donna McCrory said: “Gerry has brought a lot to Tyrone football and with this group of players we have set targets for the future. It’s an exciting time, the link up between the senior management with the work of our academies and the great development work that’s being done will be good for Tyrone.”

Moane himself will meet the current senior squad this week and confirmed that after watching a lot of the club championship alongside his and the minor management he would be adding to that group.

Moane said: “We have seen a lot of football and we will be bringing players in for both squads, it’s important there is that link, that crossover, it’s about developing the players, everyone is keen to get started again, we are delighted going forward.”

Tyrone Ladies GFA has also confirmed the following appointments: Mark Doran minor, Martin Conway Under 16, Kevin Mc Crystal Under 14 while Various Academy team managers will be appointed shortly.
