Mayo legend Andy Moran and All Ireland winning Mayo U21 manager Michael Solan are set to take over the management of Ballaghaderreen GAA senior team for the upcoming season.
The pair take the reins from outgoing manager Paul McHugh, who retired in December after four years at the helm.
The 2017 Footballer of the Year and Solan both found success at club level for Ballaghaderreen and were both part of the teams that won the Mayo Senior Football Championship in 2008 and 2012.
The pair were also both involved with the Mayo U20’s set up in recent times, with Solan having stepped down as U20’s manager in October following five years in charge.
Moran was also a part of the U20 setup in a coaching capacity last season.
They will be joined by a backroom staff of Pat Sharkey and Barry Maguire at Ballagh.
The club released a statement thanking outgoing manager McHugh for his contributions to the club.
“Ballaghaderreen GAA wish to pay tribute to Paul for his dedication, hard work, passion and commitment to the club.
We wish you well Paul and look forward to seeing you back on the sideline as a spectator over the coming years.
Huge thanks for steering us to great things and we look forward to more days out under the new management team.”
