Former Tyrone star Enda McGinley has been confirmed as the new manager of the Antrim footballers.

The Errigal Ciaran man replaces the out-going Lenny Harbinson who stood down following the Saffrons' Ulster quarter-final defeat to Cavan.

His backroom team includes former Red Hand teammate Stephen O’Neill, Stephen Quinn and Sean Kelly.

McGinley held off the competition of a Tony McEntee-Kevin Madden management ticket.

McGinley - a brother-in-law of Antrim duo Tomas and Michael McCann - was in charge of Derry club Swatragh last season.
