Peter Canavan has stepped down as Fermanagh football manager after two years in the role.

Canavan  met the Fermanagh players prior to a county board meeting where he informed them of his decision.

The Tyrone legend did have the option of continuing on for a third year but opted to get out.

Canavan hinted at possible departure after their second championship defeat to Cavan in July when he remarked that there were "things outside our control that people are going to have to look at."

Meanwhile, there is increasing hope in Mayo that Cillian O'Connor may be able to play a role in the All-Ireland final against Dublin.

O'Connor will put off surgery on his shoulder and focus on rehabilitation over the next three weeks to see if his condition will improve. He is understood to have done some light training over the weekend.
