Asked by the Observer after the five point loss to Tourlestrane about his own future, Glenn was non-committal but the impression was of the end of a very successful partnership – “In the balance but I’ve had three great years with them, they are a great bunch of lads so we’ll see.”

Pressed further, Glenn added “Maybe it is time for me to move on and maybe for the players, it is time for me to move on as well. Maybe they need freshening up, you can get too familiar with people and they can get too familiar with you.

“But you know, I wouldn’t swap them for any other team, they’re a great bunch of lads and when you’re talking about effort in training and everything, they bring it in abundance and that is why they are successful.”

Further hints to his future came when discussing the future of Glencar/Manor’s young team and suggests that Young will not be at the helm of the north Leitrim men as they seek an unprecedented five-in-a-row in 2012.

“I suppose if you look at Glencar/Manor, the average age of the team is 23. We won four titles in a row in Leitrim and to be fair, I can see them going on and winning more. It is hard work at the end of the day and there has to be a lot of it for them to go on,” said Glenn.
