PAUL TAYLOR WILL continue as manager of the Sligo senior footballers after the County Board confirmed today that he has been “unanimously ratified” for a second season in charge.

The former county player will be aiming to oversee a much-improved showing from the Yeats County in 2020, after they lost all 10 of the games they were involved in this year.

Following their relegation to Division 4 of the Allianz Football League, Sligo suffered a 3-11 to 0-7 defeat to Galway in the Connacht SFC semi-finals.

Their season came to an end in Tullamore on 23 June, when Offaly recorded a 3-17 to 0-15 victory in the second round of the qualifiers.

Taylor, a former Sligo U21 manager, succeeded Cathal Corey in the senior job for 2019. He previously served as a senior selector during Kevin Walsh’s tenure.
