McKeever was ratified last night as the new Armagh minor football manager where he will succeed 2002 All-Ireland winner Paul McGrane in the role. 

In August last year McKeever brought the curtain down on a 14-year inter-county career with the Armagh senior football side.

He had been part of four Ulster senior football triumphs with Armagh during that time and represented Ireland at International Rules level.

In 2004 the St Patrick’s Cullyhanna club man captained Armagh to All-Ireland U21 glory while he had also picked up league medals after success in Division 1 and 3 finals with the county. 

Armagh’s Ulster minor championship campaign this year saw them suffer defeats to Down and Derry.
