FORMER WATERFORD HURLERS Stephen Frampton and James Murray are to help select the next county senior manager.

Frampton and Murray have agreed to be on a six-man committee that will choose the new boss.

In the wake of last night’s Waterford county board meeting, it was confirmed by the Waterford GAA’s Twitter account today that the two former defensive stars have come on board to be part of the selection process.

They will join four members of the Waterford county board executive on the appointments group.

Waterford clubs have until midnight next Monday, September 23rd, to nominate candidates for the next manager.

But it must be ascertained beforehand whether those candidates are willing to go forward for the position.

It was announced last month that Michael Ryan was not going forward for the 2014 campaign having been in charge of Waterford for the last two years.

It subsequently emerged that decision came after a players meeting where a change in manager was sought.

But Ryan did tell RTE’s programme ‘Championship Matters’ programme that he would keep an open mind about allowing his name to go forward again for the job.
