Mayo LGFA Senior manager Michael Moyles today announced that he’s stepping away from the post following completion of his three-year term.
In the aftermath of the team’s recent defeat to Kerry in the All-Ireland semi-final, the Crossmolina native said he’d reflect on the issue for a short while but he has now decided to call time on his tenure in the post. Report on this in the Mayo News is here.
Michael took the job following a turbulent period for Mayo LGFA but despite that, and the loss of several high-profile players to the AFLW, he pushed the team forward during his three years in charge.
In each of the last three seasons Mayo reached the All-Ireland semi-final but it was clear when he chatted to the Mayo Football Podcast after the loss to Kerry a few weeks back that this was far from the height of his ambitions for his big-hearted and committed team. Sadly he leaves the position without leading his charges to an All-Ireland decider but he unquestionably leaves Mayo LGFA in a far better place than he found it.
Best wishes to Michael for the future and heartfelt thanks to him for all the hard work he put in as Mayo manager over the past three seasons.
