Cuthbert ‘stepping down with immediate effect’ as Cork senior football manager

Posted by

Brian Cuthbert has announced this morning that he is leaving his position as Cork football boss with immediate effect.

It had been that he would do so following in Thurles last Saturday night, just a week after losing to Kerry in the replayed Munster football final.

He confirmed his resignation in a statement which read: “I have decided not to seek reappointment to the position of Cork senior football manager and am stepping down with immediate effect”.

“From being within a few seconds of being crowned Munster Champions to making our All Ireland Championship exit at the hands of Kildare at the week-end has been difficult for me, the players and backroom staff. The short period involved demonstrates the tight margins that exist between success and failure at inter county level.

“I would like to thank the players and all the backroom staff for their huge commitment over the past two years. I would also like to thank the Cork County Board for extending every support possible to myself and the team in the course of the League and Championship campaigns.”
