BRENDAN Trainor is looking forward to his first out-and-out managerial role when he takes the reins of his native Augher this year.
Trainor assisted Lenny Harbinson at Antrim between 2018 and 2020 before the duo made the decision to step aside last season, and he was also a right-hand man at clubs like Ballymacnab (Armagh), St Pat’s, Donagh (Fermanagh) and Mullahoran (Cavan).
Now he’s taking the hot-seat at Augher, and it promises to be quite the challenge given that they have struggled to bounce back from their surprise defeat to Tattyreagh in the 2018 Intermediate Championship final.
Trainor, who works at St Ciaran’s College Ballygawley, commented: “Progress hasn’t been great for the last couple of years for one reason or another, between players being unavailable and the impact of Covid and so on. Losing out in the championship final to Tattyreagh had an impact as well.”
