Former Clare senior selector Jimmy Browne remains in charge of the Broadford senior hurlers for 2021 and he’ll be joined by an All-Ireland winning coach.

Last year, Broadford reached the quarter-finals of the Clare senior hurling championship bowing out to eventual winners Sixmilebridge on a scoreline of 0-21 0-12 in what was regarded as a positive campaign for the East Clare men.

As a result of this, the 2019 intermediate champions have re-appointed the management team which is headed up by Clonlara’s Jimmy Browne. The Vice-President Corporate Services & Capital Development at Limerick Institute of Technology previously managed Monaleen to success in the Limerick IHC.

He also served as selector on the Clare U21 hurling teams that won three Munster and All-Ireland titles from 2012 to 2014, moving onto the senior ranks for Donal Moloney and Gerry O’Connor’s three year spell in charge of the county seniors. The Clonlara man is also the manager of LIT’s Fitzgibbon Cup team.

Speaking to The Clare Echo following their championship exit last year, Jimmy described their 2020 endeavours as “a good step forward for the club”.

John Corcoran has stepped from the management citing work commitments while the club have secured a big coup by enlisting Aonghus O’Brien, a coach with the Limerick senior hurlers and a former Clare senior hurling coach in 2016 to their set-up.

Ex Clare selector Kieran Corcoran and Padraig Boland also form part of the Broadford management. Garath Walsh is the side’s strength and conditioning coach.
