If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then you must read John Morrison’s column in the current issue of Gaelic Life.

In the article he lays out, point-by-point, a detailed explanation of how to seamlessly take over  new team. He highlights the challenges that you are likely to face, and points out the pitfalls.

One of the points he makes is not to rush things:
