Pete McGrath has been reappointed for a second year in charge of Fermanagh.

The double All-Ireland winning former Down boss (1991 and ’94) took over from Peter Canavan for this year’s campaign but Fermanagh narrowly lost both their championship outings, losing by two points to Antrim in Ulster and by just a single point to Laois in the qualifiers.

Fermanagh finished third in Division three, five points off the promotion pace.

"The season had highs and lows, but it is a building process," McGrath The Irish News.

"Given the level of talent and the commitment and honesty of players we have, we have every reason to be optimistic. And if they carry on the focus and honesty, I am very positive about continued improvement.

"Last year, my appointment was late (November), but this year we will have an earlier start."

Vinny Connolly and Niall Jackman were also reapppointed as U-21 and minor football managers for another term.
