Kildare to stick with Jason Ryan as manager despite league relegation

KILDARE COUNTY BOARD have opted to stick with senior football manager Jason Ryan despite the Lilywhites’ relegation to Division 3 of the National Football League.

Ryan’s position had come under threat amid reports of low player morale after a second successive relegation in his two-year tenure.

However, Kildare chairman Ger Donnelly last night told a county board meeting that Ryan’s position as manager would not face review until the end of the Lilywhites’ run in the Championship this summer.

That means Ryan will take charge for the Leinster Championship clash away to either  either Laois or Carlow on 6 June with a likely meeting with Dublin in store should both counties make the semi-final stage.
