Jim McCorry joins Armagh Management team

Lurgan native and former Armagh manager and team captain Jim McCorry has joined the County Senior Football Management Team. Jim managed Armagh in the early 1990’s and led them to a National League Final in 1994 losing out to Meath.

Jim enjoyed club management success with both Kilcoo and Mayobridge before taking over Down. Despite getting them to Division One, his tenure in charge did not go beyond that initial year following a fall out with the Down County Board.

Jim has been on Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney’s radar for some time but ill health prevented his appointment until now “I’m delighted to welcome Jim to the county management team. With his previous experience and success, he brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and we are looking forward to working with him” added Kieran.
