Today footballs worst kept secret was finally made official – Martin O’Neill is Ireland’s new football manager. What people were not expecting was that Roy Keane has been announced as his assistant. So while fans and the media clamour to get a front row seat for the most exciting and entertaining announcement to come from the FAI in years, BSMG would like to take this opportunity to recognise one of the FAI’s other appointments today – the naming of Mike McGurn as the national sides new Strength and Conditioning Coach.
With a vast experience working with the Ireland Rugby team and other international rugby stars, the GAA and the International Rules setup, Mike is certainly an appointment that will hold the FAI in good stead.
To Mike from all at BSMG, congratulations on your appointment. It is well deserved and we look forward to seeing your expertise benefits Irish football into the future.
