Fermanagh's senior footballers are on the lookout for a new manager as Rory Gallagher has decided to step down after two years in charge of his native county.

The Impartial Reporter has revealed that Gallagher informed County Board officials and the players this morning that he won't be staying on for 2020.

The highlight of his two-year tenure was last year's march to the Ulster SFC final, which they lost to his former Donegal charges, while they came close to securing promotion to Division 1 earlier this year.

Fermanagh GAA has released a statement thanking Gallagher and his backroom team for all their efforts while wishing them every success in the future:

"We have been notified today by Rory Gallagher that he is stepping down from the position of Fermanagh Senior Team Manager.

"Fermanagh County Committee would like to thank Rory and his entire backroom team for all their hard work and commitment over the last two years.

"We acknowledge the progress made in respect of their work with the county team having reached the Ulster final in 2018 and gaining promotion to NFL Division 2 in the same year, a status which was maintained in 2019.

"We wish Rory and all members of his backroom team every success for the future."
