Rathcline clubman Gareth Johnston has been appointed the manager of the Longford minor football squad for 2021 & 2022. 

The former Rathcline and Longford footballer was ratified for the role of the county U-17 boss at a meeting of the County Board executive last night (Thursday). 

Johnston returns for a second stint as the manager of the Longford minor footballers (U-18 grade back in 2014) and coached his native Rathcline to Intermediate Championship glory in 2015.
