Jack O'Connor set to be appointed Kerry U20 boss on a two-year term

The Dromid Pearses man was previously in charge of the Kingdom U21s.

THE KERRY COUNTY board have announced they’ll put forward the name of Jack O’Connor to be appointed manager of the county’s U20s for the next two years.

O’Connor is one of the most successful managers of all-time, having led Kerry to three senior and two minor All-Ireland titles since 2004.

The Dromid Pearses man was previously in charge of the Kingdom U21s, after taking over from Darragh Ó Sé in 2015. He led Kerry to their first Munster title at the grade since 2008, before they were upset by Galway in the All-Ireland semi-final.

From 2018, the GAA’s U21 championships are to be replaced by the U20 grade, while any player named on a senior inter-county team is ineligible for the new competition.

Kerry chairman Tim Murphy will propose O’Connor at the next meeting of the county committee on 4 September.
