The County Board have this morning announced that next Thursday (September 18th) is the deadline for clubs to submit nominations for the vacant Mayo manager’s position. Nominations from clubs have to be in by 11pm that night and have also to include written confirmation from the person being nominated that they’re happy to let their name go forward for the post. The County Board Executive then plan to meet to consider the next stage in the process, which presumably will be to draw up a shortlist for interview.
The odds on who will get the job, by the way, have fluctuated a bit over the last 24 hours. Galway bookie John Mulholland now has Noel Connelly priced as the 4/9 favourite with Kevin McStay now on offer at 13/8, while Tony McGarry and James Nallen are both priced at 5/1. Paddy Power, meanwhile, still lists McStay as the favourite at 4/6, with Connelly at 5/4, McGarry at 11/2 and Nallen at 6/1.
