GERRY Cooney has ended speculation about his future as Offaly Senior Football manager amd has decided to stay on in the position along with his management team.

The Offaly native had been considering his position in the wake of Offalys fourth consecutive league defeat against Wexford last Sunday.

It is understood that further defections from the panel and a number of players chosing not to come into the panel when asked played a part in the manager’s decision to consider his position.

Offaly play Cavan in Breffni Park this Sunday in a crunch game and it is unlikely that the county’s U-21s will be available for selection given they have a Leinster semi-final the following Wednesday.
