Meath man Ger Robinson has taken over as manager of Kildare Intermediate Football Champions Clogherinkoe for the 2021 season.
Robinson, who was in charge of the Meath U20 footballers in 2020, takes over from the out-going Ronan Quinn, who leaves the club in a good place, as they look forward to competing in the Kildare Senior Football Championship for the first time next year.
The Dunboyne was once on the books of Middlesbrough and rubbed shoulders with stars like Gazza before returning home and helping his club to win a Meath SFC title in 2005 as a player.
He has since gone on to manage underage and adult teams in Dunboyne to Championship success, as well as been on the management team as the club won the Senior Football Championship in 2018.
Robinson will be joined by Enfield man Shane Barrett as coach.
Clogherinkoe took to their social media pages tonight to announce the news; “Clogherinkoe Gaa are delighted to announce the appointment of Ger Robinson (Manager) and Shane Barrett (Coach) as our management team for the Senior football side in 2021.
Ger is the outgoing Meath U20 manager, while Shane was involved as coach in the Royals setup in the year just gone. Both have built up considerable experience over the last few years with Ger leading his native Dunboyne to JFC and U21 success in 2018, while he was also senior selector the same year as his club won the Meath SFC.
Shane has also been involved with a number of teams overs the years and was involved with Kildare side Confey in 2018.
This is a positive appointment by the club ahead of our first year in the Kildare SFC and we wish the management and players every success going forward”
