Fergus McMahon has indicated that he would be interested in being involved with London’s hurlers next year, at least in some capacity.
McMahon, who is beginning his first year in charge of Robert Emmett having taken over the reins from Mick O’Dea, has been being touted as a possible successor to Eamonn Phelan, who stepped down as Exiles manager last month.
McMahon told the Irish World that he would find it hard to turn down the manager’s position if it was offered to him, but would also consider being part of a management team.
“You couldn’t turn down a county job ever if it was offered to you, but it’s to do with time as well. If you go, you have to go with two feet,” he said.
While McMahon may be cutting his teeth in management he has a wealth of experience on the playing front having captained London to Nicky Rackard success in 2005, as well as Emmetts to All Ireland IHC Club glory at Croke Park two years later and senior titles in London.
