New role for Fitzmaurice

FORMER defender and current U-21 manager Eamon Fitzmaurice is to join the Kerry senior management ranks.

Following the recent departure of Donie Buckley from Jack O'Connor's team, the Finuge clubman will assist Alan O'Sullivan with the training of the squad.

Former All-Ireland medal winning defender Fitzmaurice served as a Kerry selector in 2009 and 2010 before stepping down to take over the U-21s.
