CALLS TO BRING GEEZER HOME
Tuesday, 10 September 2013
ARMAGH legend Oisin McConville has called on his former team-mate Kieran McGeeney to help guide the Orchard County back to the top after the 2002 All-Ireland winning captain was sensationally axed from his Kildare managerial post.
McGeeney, who is Armagh's only All-Ireland winning captain, lost his role with the Lilywhites by only one vote, which was held by Kildare club delegates.
While the decision to oust McGeeney, who took Kildare to winning the Division Two title as well as featuring in five out of the last six All-Ireland quarter-finals, caught the GAA world by storm, it could also be an opportunity to bring McGeeney back into the Armagh fold.
Something McConville agrees on in his Democrat Column.
“If he was to come back to Armagh then the county would love it," McConville writes.
“I would like to think that is the first thing we would do, obviously Geezer would be hurting but I am sure the Armagh County Board or management team would have went to him to see if he is interested.
“One thing about Geezer is, I don't think he will be stuck for teams to manage and from that point of view I would love to see him back with Armagh.
“I think he could be the missing link that could cut out all the crap that was going on."
Armagh manager Paul Grimley has often asserted that he would like a member of the 2002 All-Ireland team to become part of the management team and it is believed that Geezer could be tempted to re-join with Grimley, whom he first managed Kildare with.
