Former Rathnew captain Trevor Doyle has been lined up to become the new manager of the Ballinacor intermediate football team, according to Bill Hill.

Doyle — who captained the Village to the Leinster senior football title in 2001 — takes charge of Ballinacor having previously managed Kiltegan to the quarter-finals of the senior county championship in 2018.

Meanwhile, Ballinacor survived relegation from the intermediate football championship by the skin of their teeth in 2018, beating Ashford 2-13 to 1-14 in a play-off following a campaign which saw them lose every game beforehand.

That followed a league season which saw them end seventh in division two, nine points off Newtown and Carnew Emmets in joint-first.
