Canavan to manage Errigal


GAA: Tyrone legend Peter Canavan has taken his first steps into management after he was appointed manager of club side Errigal Ciaran, the club he won two Ulster Club Championship titles as a player.

The former Red Hands captain led Tyrone to a first All-Ireland title in 2003 and was an integral part in the county's second Sam Maguire Cup success in 2005.

Canavan retired from inter-county football after the 2005 All-Ireland success and stepped away from the club scene at the end of 2007.

During his playing days Canavan won six All Star awards and represented Ireland in the International Rules series.

In his new role with Errigal he will work with a number of players who he enjoyed All-Ireland success with, including current Tyrone stars Enda McGinley, Davy Harte and John Devine.

When Canavan won his last provincial club title in 2003, Errigal were managed by Mickey Harte, who has since gone on to guide Tyrone to three All-Ireland titles after this year's win.
