Michael Hogan, the treasurer of Waterford GAA’s County Board, is to stand down from his current role come the County Convention which is due to be held in mid-December.
The Old Parish man has occupied the role for the past five and a half years since succeeding the late Tony Morrissey in the spring of 2005 and has been widely recognised for his commendable tenure.
It’s believed that current County PRO Joe Cleary is among the front runners for the Treasurer’s role, given the interest he previously expressed in the position.
The Abbeyside/Ballinacourty Club Man would bring over a decade of experience with him to the table, having filled the same position on the Bord na nÓg committee during the late 1990s.
Meanwhile it is expected that John Owens will be re-appointed as manager of the county senior footballers at the County Board meeting which is due to take place in Dungarvan on Monday night.
The County Down native who guided the county to the third tier of the National Football League earlier this year is expected to be given two more years on the recommendation of Coiste Peil.
It’s also expected that his 2010 management team of Jim McGrath, Liam Dalton, Dinny Hassett and team trainer Joe Hagan will also be re-appointed.
The manager of the county’s minor hurling and football teams are also expected to be ratified at next Monday nights meeting.
The County Coaching Committee have the right to forward names to the County Board for ratification each year, but the committee at this point are staying tight lipped as to who these will be.
