Canavan satisfied Fermanagh issues will be addressed

Fermanagh boss Peter Canavan said he has "every faith" the issues he raised before meeting with his Erne bosses would be addressed.

Canavan said he was "delighted to be back" after an "open and frank discussion" between himself and the board.

The dual All-Ireland winner sparked speculation over his future when he told the media after the crushing qualifier defeat to Cavan, that he and his back-room team were "not going to be staying on just for the sake of staying on if we were not happy with things."

He said "outside issues" needed to be addressed. "Are the players getting the best opportunity to be the best they can be?" he asked. Speaking for the first time since his immediate post-match comments, Canavan said he was "very, very happy. It was an open and frank discussion.

"There were issues that needed to be talked about and needed to be addressed and I have every faith they will be addressed in the coming season.

Canavan also confirmed that he expected no change in his back-room team either.

"Division 3 will be much tougher and we will need to step up considerably.

"The potential is still there. Fermanagh has a small pool to pick from and everyone has to buy into what we are trying to do in terms of preparation."
