Terence McNaughton has walked away from his role as Antrim senior hurling selector.
‘Sambo’ stepped down in the wake of the Glensmens’ shock 0-14 to 0-12 Leinster SHC defeat to 14-man Westmeath at Mullingar last weekend.
That result represented a massive setback for Jerry Wallace’s team, who were hoping to build on the feel good factor that had been injected into Antrim hurling by Loughgiel’s All-Ireland club success two months earlier.
Cushendall clubman McNaughton is himself a former Antrim manager and his son Shane is one of the star players on the current team. He cited other commitments as his reason for stepping aside.
