Mattie McGleenan confirmed as new Cavan boss
MATTIE McGleenan been ratified as the new manager of the Cavan senior footballers.
The former Tyrone player and current boss of recently crowned back-to-back Monaghan champions Scotstown fills the void left by Terry Hyland. The Lacken native led Cavan back to Division One of the National Football league this season, but the Championship campaign ended in disappointment with an Ulster SFC semi-final replay defeat to Tyrone and a Qualifier loss to Derry.
The Eglish man's detail will be to try and bring longed for silverware to Cavan by building on the county's recent impressive run of success at U21 level. McGleenan, who has also managed Monaghan Harps, led Scotstown to their first county title in 19 years in 2013 and took the Monaghan champions to the Ulster senior club final last year, where they were beaten by Crossmaglen. The north Monaghan club won their 16th county title last weekend, when they beat Clontibret, and now face Kilcoo in the Ulster series.
The Cavan county board have stated that McGleenan's back room team will be announced in due course.
