Kieran McGeeney is poised to take over from Armagh manager Paul McGrimley at the end of their championship run according to reports today.

The Irish News reports that Grimley is set to step down when the Orchard County bow out of the 2014 campaign with his 42 year-old assistant ready to step into the role.

The paper says that 56-year-old Grimley intends to take a break from the game having been involved in management for 13 years.

McGeeney, 42, was captain of the Armagh team which won the All-Ireland Championship in 2002 and managed the Kildare senior footballers before linking up with his native county.

Armagh pulled off a surprise three-point win over Tyrone last weekend and now face Roscommon in round 3B of the All-Ireland qualifiers.
