Tipperary's Lar Corbett and Dublin's Bernard Brogan repeated their All Star success when named the 2010 Opel GPA Players of the Year in hurling and football respectively last night.

Westmeath's Joe Clarke, Armagh's Paul McCormack and Longford's Garret Ghee were GPA Players of the Tournament in the Christy Ring, Nicky Rackard and Lory Meagher Cups respectively.

Yesterday was a historic day for camogie and ladies football as their associations signed an agreement with Croke Park that will eventually lead to all GAA clubs operating a 'one club' model, that will administer both of the ladies games as well as their male counterparts.

The three associations have agreed that, at club level, single administrative units are the way forward; the GAA's Munster Council chairman Sean Walsh will chair a new committee to establish it.

However, women's football and camogie will still retain separate administrative organisations at county, provincial and national level.

Elsewhere, former Galway forward Tommie Joyce, player/ manager of Killererin, has been appointed as manager of the county minor footballers and ex-Kilkenny star Adrian Ronan is expected to be named as their new minor hurling manager next week.
