Derry Senior hurling manager John McEvoy and his management team have stepped down from their positions ahead of the 2021 season.
Derry GAA would like to sincerely thank John McEvoy, Johnny McGuirk and Brian Delargy for their work over the past two years in their posts.
The period saw a large number of young players introduced to the senior ranks, with the standards set by John and his team a tremendous base on which to build for the future.
In a statement to Derry GAA, manager John McEvoy thanked those he worked with in the past two seasons:
“We would like to thank the Players who committed to the Derry Senior Hurling Project over the last two years and thank them for raising the standards, preparation and ambition of being a Derry Senior Hurler.”
“As manager I would like to thank all the management for their work and integrity with special thanks to the Coaches, Selectors, Medical Team, Stats Team and Kitmen.”
“Special thanks from us all to Terry Gray for his invaluable service to Derry Hurling. Finally, we would like to thank the Clubs and County Board for their support.”
“This journey has only begun for Derry Hurling and we hope all parties drive on and develop this project further in the coming years.”
The process to appoint a new management team will commence in due course when nominations will be sought.
