Statement from Liam Bradley, Antrim senior football team manager
We the management of the Antrim senior football team were approached by captain Aodhan Gallagher after the Galway game. He confided in us he is experiencing some personal issues at present. He has decided that he has no option but to withdraw from the panel as he cannot give the necessary commitment.
It is a regrettable situation but we the management team and the entire squad respect Aodhan’s decision and we hope that his personal circumstances improve to the extent that he can return to what he does best – playing football.
Our entire focus is now on the important qualifier game against Tipperary this Saturday.
