Ballantine is manager of the Month

The announcement of the Manager of the Month for February’s TESCO HomeGrown National Football League was made today in association with the Star newspaper. Gerry Balantine was the recipient of the award after his Leitrim side were one of only three teams across all 4 divisions to maintain a 100% record throughout the month.


Leitrim have been in high scoring form since the beginning of the league with high scoring performances against Wicklow, Wexford and a remarkable comeback victory over Tipperary in the third round which they won 3-10 to 5-7 with late goals sealing victory and ensuring Leitrim stayed top of Division 3. They have since continued their form with an impressive victory over neighbours, Sligo, last time out.


Speaking at the presentation Gerry said ‘I am delighted with this award which is recognition of the dedication and commitment of the girls on our panel who are brilliant to work with and have really worked hard so far.’


Lynn Moynihan, Local Marketing Manager for TESCO Ireland, said “Leitrim have made a fantastic start to their 2013 National Football League season.   The county has a proud Ladies Football tradition and Gerry has brought the best out of a talented pool of players who are clearly playing with confidence and purpose.  We wish Gerry and the Leitrim Ladies the very best of luck for the rest of their league campaign”
