Martin McKinless and Fabian Muldoon have stepped down as manager and assistant manager of Ballinderry.

The pair led the south Derry club to three successive county championships culminating with the Ulster title won in December.

The stint was McKinless' third in charge of his native Shamrocks, twice before winning the Derry championship, but after losing out to St. Vincent's in the All-Ireland semi final in February, the Ballinderry man has called time on his latest spell in the hotseat and the search for a successor begins immediately.

A club statement read this morning: "The Executive Committee of Ballinderry Shamrocks advise that our history making and successful management team of Martin McKinless and Fabian Muldoon have both confirmed that they will not be seeking re-appointment for the 2014 club season.

"On behalf of all members of Ballinderry Shamrocks GAC, we wish to place on record our sincere appreciation for their commitment and dedication over the past three years along with their wider management team."
