STEELSTOWN are on the lookout for a new senior football manager after Hugh McGrath stepped down after two years in charge that delivered Derry, Ulster and All-Ireland silverware.
After knocking on the door in Derry for a first championship success at adult level, Steelstown saw off Greenlough to bring home the 2021 intermediate title before going on a run that took them to the steps of the Hogan Stand on All-Ireland final day.

It was McGrath’s second stint as boss after he helped the club into senior football during his previous tenure. He was involved at underage level and was the club’s reserve manager before stepping into the hot seat for the 2021 season.
McGrath’s selectors Raymond Tracey and Dermot McBride have also called time on their involvement
A native of Down, McGrath is the current Derry Coaching Officer and was part of Derry’s Ulster winning management team under Rory Gallagher.
