Brennan in Galway hotseat

GALWAY legend John 'Jumbo' Brennan is back in League of Ireland football as manager of struggling Galway United.

Sean Connor's time as Galway boss ended on Friday night, after a 2-2 draw against Dundalk which ended a disastrous run of 22 successive league defeats, and the club have handed Brennan the chance to manage the side for the rest of the season, starting with tonight's league game away to UCD. Brennan starred for Galway United as a player but also lined out for Shamrock Rovers, Sligo Rovers and Dundalk, and he moves up from the Galway United 'A' Championship side.
