Kingdom U-21 role for O Se

SIX-TIME All-Ireland winner Darragh O Se looks set to be appointed as a selector to the Kerry U-21 football team.

O Se, who retired from inter-county football in 2009, will take his first steps into management when he links up with former Kerry team-mate Eamon Fitzmaurice, who was appointed the Kingdom's U-21 manager earlier this month.

Dr Crokes county championship- winning trainer Harry O'Neill, who is currently involved with the Kerry senior management team, is expected to be named as the other selector.

John O'Sullivan (31), who currently plays rugby for Agen in the French Top 14, is to be the team's trainer. He formerly played for Munster in the Magners League. His brother, Alan, is the trainer of the Kerry senior team.

Kerry's U-21s suffered a humiliating 2-24 to 0-8 defeat to cork in this year's Munster final last month.
