Will Offaly defeat Kildare in the Qualifiers this Saturday?

Clara's Pat Flanagan will take charge of the Offaly Senior Football team for a third term next year after last night's Offaly County Board meeting.

Offaly only missed out on promotion from Division 3 this year on score difference having won four of their seven games.

Offaly defeated Longford in the First Round of the Leinster Championship ending a nine year wait for a provincial victory. They lost out to Westmeath in the next round but bounced back to beat London in the qualifiers.

They exited the championship at the hands of Kildare after a thrilling game in Newbridge.

Flanagan's selectors will be James Stewart, Pat Dingle Daly and Declan Farrell. Niall Gaynor and David Hare will also be part of the back-room team.
