MICHAEL NEYLON is to take time before deciding on his future as manager of the Clare U20 footballers.

Neylon’s charges bowed out at the semi-final stage for the second time in his three year tenure on Easter Monday.

Under the Miltown Malbay man’s watch, Clare have lost to Cork (2020 semi-final), Waterford (2021 quarter-final) and Kerry (2022 semi-final) but recorded wins over Waterford (2020) and Tipperary (2022).

Formerly a senior selector under Mick O’Dwyer and Colm Collins, the secondary school teacher previously guided St Joseph’s Miltown to glory in the Clare SFC defeating Cooraclare in 2015 and Ennistymon in 2018.

Speaking to The Clare Echo regarding his inter-county future, Michael stated, “It is a huge commitment, it is an enjoyable commitment I have to say, I’ll give it a couple of months and see how everything goes”.

Eoin Murray of O’Currys, S&C coach Oscar O’Dwyer from Arravale Rovers in Tipperary, goalkeeper coach Sean O’Brien also of St Joseph’s Miltown have been involved for the entirety of Neylon’s U20 tenure. Dingle’s David Geaney and Martin Guerin of Liscannor departed their roles as coach and selector with Diarmuid Carroll and ex Clare footballer, Colm Clancy of Corofin joining the set-up this year.
