Kerry club giants Dr Crokes are on the hunt for a new management team after joint-managers Noel O'Leary and Vince Casey have stepped down in the wake of player unrest.

Radio Kerry reports that the duo were forced to resign after a meeting of the playing squad last week saw them request a change in management.

O’Leary and Casey have held the reigns at Dr Crokes for the last two seasons after they replaced Harry O’Neill in 2012.

Under the dual management team, Crokes lifted two Kerry and two Munster titles but fell short when it came to the All-Ireland championship, exiting at the semi-finals stage last month with a defeat to Castlebar Mitchel’s. 

Crokes have also been rocked by the injury to talismanic star Colm Cooper, who will be sidelined for the rest of the year with a cruciate ligament injury.
