Liam Bradley has resigned from his position as Antrim senior football manager after just one season at the helm.

Bradley led the county to a first championship win in five years when they beat Fermanagh in their Ulster quarter-final clash.

They would go on to be beaten by All-Ireland finalists Donegal in the semi and by Limerick in the qualifiers.

Bradley’s decision comes after Antrim had sought club nominations for the post of manager in 2015.

“We have reluctantly accepted the resignation and we place on record our thanks for all that Liam has done for us,” said county chairman Jim Murray.

The Derry native had previously held the post from 2009 to 2012 and led the county to an Ulster final in his first season in charge.
