The Lilywhites players aren’t happy with the decision.

KILDSRE’S SENIOR FOOTBALL panel will meet tonight to discuss the dramatic axing of Kieran McGeeney.

The Armagh native was voted out of the job he’s held for six seasons in an executive meeting at St Conleth’s last night.

“In light of the Kildare County Board’s decision not to extend Kieran McGeeney’s term as manager in last night’s vote,” a statement reads, “despite the expressed support of the Kildare Senior Football squad for the manager’s retention, the panel will hold a meeting tonight to discuss the issue further and formulate a response on the matter.

“No further comment will be made by the players prior to this meeting.”
