Antrim boss pleased with operating cost

London: Antrim manager Jerry Wallace is opposite to the idea of creating inter-county managers professional.

Wallace, who was appointed Antrim hurling manager in October, travels from Midleton,CorktoBelfastand is content with the expenses he receives for making that sacrifice.

Since I’ve been involved on the inter-county scene, I’ve always got only my expenses and I’m happy to do that. He said.

At heart I’m a GAA man, I’m still involved with my own club at home. I’ve never looked for a fee; I’ve always been involved only for what I considered legitimate expenses.

On the subject of making referees professional he said: I don’t see how it could be funded.

I’m now in charge of an inter-county team, I see the costs we’re incurring and for the last two months, all we’ve had is outgoings, and we’ve had no income – that’s the reality.
