Bradley steps down in Antrim as Fitzsimons comes in

Liam BradleyThe Antrim county board have moved quickly to appoint a successor to Liam Bradley.

The Derry man who guided Antrim to a first championship win in five years stepped down as manager of their senior footballers this morning.

Bradley's resignation was confirmed this morning after his second spell in charge, but within hours the County Board announced that Under-21s manager Frank Fitzsimons is to make the step-up to the senior team.

It is understood Bradley was unhappy that Antrim had sought club nominations for the post of manager for 2015.
