MAYO WILL CHOOSE either Kevin McStay or a joint team of Noel Connelly and Pat Holmes to be the county’s next senior football manager.

Sunday Game pundit McStay, who led St Brigid’s Roscommon to the All-Ireland club title in 2012, was the early front-runner to take over from James Horan.

But Connelly and Holmes emerged as serious contenders before close of nominations last night.

The two managed Mayo to All-Ireland U21 success in 2006 while Holmes previously had a stint as senior manager from 2000 to 2002, winning a National Football League title.

“The Executive of the Mayo G.A.A. County Board will meet later today to move the process of selecting a manager onto the next stage,” a statement said.
