Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has finalised his backroom team for the 2014 season.

Rory Gallagher, video analyst Maxi Curran and Francie Friel stepped down with immediate effect last week in a shock move.

Today Donegal have confirmed Damian Diver, John Duffy and Paul McGonigle will join McGuinness as part of the managerial set-up for next year.

Diver made the first of 36 Championship appearances for Donegal in 1996 which included four Ulster finals.

He had refuted suggestions he was in line to join McGuinness' team last week.

Duffy also played for Donegal during the 1990s and featured alongside McGuinness in the 1998 Ulster final.

Paul McGonigle has been an active part of Buncrana GAA club on and off-the-field and will join the Tir Chonaill county regime.
