FORMER LONGFORD FORWARD Padraic Davis will be proposed for ratification to take over as the Midlanders’ new senior football manager, the county confirmed on Saturday.

Davis enjoyed a 12 year inter-county career between 1995 and 2007, winning four Longford Senior Football Championships with Fr Manning Gaels.

The 42-year-old went into management following the end of his playing career, helping St. Vincent’s to a minor football championship, while also helping the Longford U21s to the 2011 Leinster final.

“The subcommittee tasked with seeking a new Longford Senior Football Manager have today completed the process and will be proposing the name of Padraic Davis for ratification by Coiste Chontae,” the county announced.

In 2015 Davis took over as manager of Mohill GAA, where he led the club to two Senior Championships, two U21 Championships, and three consecutive leagues titles.

He was also a selector with the county’s senior side under the tenure of Glenn Ryan.

Longford are looking to appoint a new manager after Denis Connerton stepped down at the end of July following three years at the helm.
