Damien 9/4 To Dive Into Donegal Job

Next Donegal Manager

Outright Betting

Just less than 24 hours after pricing up the market on who will succeed Jim McGuinness as the new Donegal manager, Boylesports can report support for Damien Diver.

Initially installed at 7/2 on Saturday, Diver who had been part of McGuinness’s backroom staff is now the 9/4 joint favourite alongside Rory Gallagher following support.

It’s the 9/2 that Declan Bonner succeeds McGuinness with Martin McHugh, who declined the Donegal job in 2008, next in the betting at 5/1. Peter Canavan and Tony McEntee are next in the betting at 12/1.

We have seen support for Damien Diver in the past 24 hours which included a €1k bet been laid on Diver at 7/2 in one of our shops in the Northern region.

Our traders are keeping Rory Gallagher on their side as the former full forward, who acted as number two to Jim McGuinness, may be the first person to get offered the job.
