FORMER Kildare great Brian Lacey will form part of Bryan Murphy’s minor management team for 2013 the Leinster Leader can reveal, writes Ruth Chambers.

Rumours have been circulating that the former All Star was set to join forces with Kieran McGeeney as part of the senior management set up, however he has been snapped up by his former team mate Murphy.

Last year Lacey was coach and selector with the Limerick senior footballers, a team that pushed Kildare all the way in the qualifiers.

Lacey will be joined by Celbridge man Aidan Minnock, who led the Kildare U16s to Leinster glory recently, while Naas man Mick Hoban and Kildangan’s Declan McGrath return to complete the minor management team.
