STEVEN POACHER HAS stepped away from his role as coach with Roscommon senior footballers after one season.

Poacher joined Anthony Cunningham’s set-up for the 2021 campaign as the Rossies were relegated from Division 1 before their loss to Galway in the Connacht SFC semi-final. 

The Down native praised “true gentleman” Cunningham and admitted it was a “very difficult year.”

A teacher at St Joseph’s school in Newry, Poacher was previously involved with Down minors as a coach, while prior to that he played a key role with Carlow seniors under Turlough O’Brien.
