FORMER DUBLIN PLAYER Jack Sheedy has tonight become the new manager of the Longford senior footballers.

Sheedy is set to take the reins for his first inter-county management position and will fill the vacancy created by the departure of Kildare legend Glenn Ryan.

Sheedy has management experience in recent years at club level having been in charge of Offaly outfit Edenderry and then Kildare side Moorefield.

He guided the Newbridge-based club to the 2010 Kildare county football title with a final success against Sarsfields.

As a player Sheedy won four Leinster senior medals with Dublin and an Allstar in 1994.

Longford will feature in Division 3 of the Allianz football league next spring and have been drawn to meet Offaly in the opening round of the 2014 Leinster senior football championship.
