Wexford select O'Brien for manager's role08/10/2012 - 22:35:06
Westmeath native Aidan O'Brien has won the race to replace Jason Ryan as manager of the Wexford senior footballers.
O'Brien will be ratified as Ryan's successor at a meeting of the Wexford County Board tomorrow night, having been recommended by the Seamus Fitzhenry-led football advisory committee.
It is seen as a natural progression for O'Brien who has had underage success in the Model county, notably guiding Good Counsel College to an All-Ireland Colleges title in 1999 and he has also managed the Wexford Under-21s to a Leinster final appearance.
At club level, the Good Counsel deputy principal managed Horeswood to a Wexford Senior Football Championship crown, and won a county junior title as coach of Geraldine O'Hanrahans two years ago.
The Adamstown clubman was previously linked with the Wexford senior job before Ryan was installed in 2007.
