CORK FOOTBALL LEGEND Larry Tompkins is set to enter third-level management with UCC.

Tompkins will take over as the new coach of the UCC Fresher footballers for the upcoming 2015-16 season.

Kerry’s Tomás Ó Sé was previously in charge of the UCC Fresher side with Tompkins now set to come on board.

Billy Morgan, who coached Tompkins when Cork won the 1989 and 1990 All-Ireland senior titles, has been in charge of the UCC Sigerson side in recent years.

Tompkins is a native of Kildare but has become synonymous with Cork football. As a player he won six Munster senior titles with Cork along with two All-Ireland crowns, captaining Cork to the latter success in 1990.
