Mark Dowling is set to take over from Derek Lyng as Kilkenny U20 hurling manager.

Dowling will be ratified at the September county board meeting. He is a former Kilkenny hurler who led his home club Dicksboro and Thurles Sarsfields to Kilkenny and Tipperary SHC final appearances in 2020 and 2021 respectively. 

Lyng, who replaced the long-serving Brian Cody as senior manager last month, guided the Cats to their first All-Ireland U20 / U21 title since 2008 earlier this year.
