In a statement on social media “Wexford GAA are delighted to announce that we will be proposing John Hegarty as our new Senior Football Manager for ratification at the September County Committee Meeting.”
Hogan Stand is reporting that former Wexford star John Hegarty is set to take over the reins as the county’s senior football manager.
Wexford GAA have confirmed that the Kilanerin clubman’s name will be put forward for ratification at a county board meeting on Tuesday week.
Hegarty, who made 105 appearances during his Wexford senior playing career between 1995 and 2006 and won a Railway Cup medal with Leinster as well as six Wexford SFC titles for Kilanerin, is currently in charge of county champions Shelmaliers.
He is set to succeed fellow Wexford man Shane Roche in the Model County hotseat following the latter’s decision to step down from the post in July.
