Kevin McStay resigns as Roscommon manager

Kevin McStay has stepped aside as manager of the Roscommon footballers after meeting with officials on Wednesday.
The Mayo native has been at the helm since 2016, taking sole control for the last two seasons.
In that time, he won the Connacht title in 2017, shocking reigning champions Galway in the final, as well as regaining the Rossies' Division 1 status this Spring. They topped the Division 2 table and beat Cavan in the final at Croke Park.
The Connacht outfit reached the inaugural Super 8s after overcoming Armagh in the qualifiers, but found themselves out of their depth as they fell to Tyrone, Donegal and Dublin.
Speculation will now grow linking McStay with the vacant Mayo managerial position. Stephen Rochford stepped aside as manager last week, and several big names are being touted.
Focus also now turns to a potential successor for McStay as the Rossies prepare for life in Division 1 in January.
