Bluebell manager Andy Noonan has wasted no time in shaking up his backroom team.
Noonan and Bluebell came within two goals of making it three Senior Sunday titles on the trot but ultimately lost out on an exciting final day as Mochtas claimed their first ever crown.
The manager hasn’t spent time dwelling on the disappointment, rather he has quickly made moves he feels will increase the sides silverware chances next season.
Bluebell have appointed a new Saturday team manager with Gareth Boyne, formally of St. John Bosco, takes charge of the Red Cow second string.
Anthony Murphy leaves Sacred Hearts to join the Sunday coaching set up and will team up with James Pluck and none other than Jason Byrne on the coaching staff.
Byrne’s appointment will grab the eye, due to the current Cabinteely players profile, but it could be a shrewd move by Noonan.
Byrne, who did a stint of coaching at Sacred Heart last season, is the LOI of Ireland’s second top goal scorer of all time and could help Bluebell’s front men when it comes to putting away chances. If this season proved anything it’s every goals counts-after all there was only two goals between first and second this term.
Not to mention if Byrne hangs up his pro boots come the end of this season, he may just pull on the blue of Bluebell for the second half of next season.
