KILDARE MANAGER JASON Ryan has announced former Kildare full back Ronan Quinn as his second selector for the 2014 campaign.

Quinn, part of the Kildare teams who captured the Delaney Cup as Leinster champions in 1998 and 2000, will join Damien Hendy as selector under the former Wexford supremo.

Quinn missed out on a starting place in the 1998 All-Ireland defeat to Galway due to injury but was a key component of the Kildare sides which won two provincial championships in three years under Mick O’Dwyer.

The Leixlip clubman has built a formidable reputation for himself in since making the switch to management, guiding Confey to a Kildare Intermediate title in 2011, before narrowly losing the Leinster final that year.

Since then Confey have established themselves as one of the most exciting sides in the county, losing by just a point to county finalists Sarsfields in the senior quarter-finals this year.

They also contested a first ever Division One league final during the summer in which they were edged out by subsequent county champions Moorefield.

It is believed that Ryan will look to add one more selector to his backroom staff in time as well as another Strength & Conditioning coach alongside the recently appointed Steve Sheeran, Brian McGrogan and Alan Kenny.
