There will be many disappointed Wicklow Fans today as Davy Burke has announced in a statement to Wicklow GAA that he is stepping down from his Wicklow Senior Football Team management role after two very successful years in charge that saw Wicklow promoted to Division 3 and status held with a great win over Ulster Champions Cavan with a win over Wexford in the Championship in his first year in charge. It’s sad to see Davy go after such a positive impact on our team but we wish him the best in his next endeavour which will no doubt be another successful addition to a hugely impressive CV.
I would like to thank the group of Wicklow players that I was extremely lucky to have worked with over the past 2 years. I am very proud of the group and what they have achieved in gaining promotion from division 4 and retaining division 3 status for 2022 in what were very challenging times. I can’t thank my management team of Mike Hassett and Gary Jameson enough for their huge effort and unwavering support over the 2 years. I would also like to thank our backroom team for their time, commitment and expertise they each brought to our setup. Finally I would like to thank the Wicklow County Board, the Wicklow Clubs and our team sponsor Renault for their invaluable support. Wicklow Football is in a very strong position and I look forward to following their continued progress in the coming years.
Davy had two very capable generals by his side who played no small part in Wicklows success in the form of Mike Hassett and Gary Jameson and they will hopefully continue to play integral roles in the further development of Wicklow GAA. Davy had left Wicklow Football in a better position than he found it and no more can be asked from any manager and we have no doubt that Wicklow supporters will be gutted to see him go but will want to see him do well wherever his journey takes him and we wish him all the very best🔵🟡
