Mickey Graham has joined Andy Moran's Leitrim senior football managerial team.

Graham recently ended his tenure as Cavan manager after five seasons in charge, having taken over the Breffni County in 2019.

He replaces Mike Solan in Moran's backroom, who left his role last August due to work commitments.

He had been Moran’s right-hand man over the past two seasons but recently took a new position as a school principal.

The addition of Graham is a massive coup for the county.

After relegation from Division One, Graham led Cavan to a first Ulster final since 2001, where they lost to Donegal.

In 2020, they beat Donegal in the Ulster final to clinch a first Anglo-Celt Cup since 1997.

He left the county having steered them to successive league promotions and will operate in Division 2 next year.

Graham’s appointment was rubber-stamped at a meeting of the Leitrim County Committee on Monday night.
