Pat Flanagan named new Sligo senior manager

Pat Flanagan was last night appointed Sligo's new football manager, five months on from Kevin Walsh's departure.

It is expected he will be supported in the role by the county's 2013 minor manager Glenn Young.

It is the last inter-county football management role to be filled ahead of the start of the 2014 season.

Sligo are immersed in a heavy €1.5m debt and have been in negotiations with Croke Park over a loan facility to help them alleviate some of that.

Former Mayo, Roscommon and Fermanagh manager John Maughan and former Mayo footballer Michael Moyles were linked with the role in recent weeks.
