Former Antrim hurling boss Dinny Cahill is to assist Armagh manager Michael Johnston in the coming season.

Cahill and former Down manager John Crossey will act as coaches and selectors in Johnston's Orchard County backroom team.

Armagh reached this year's Ulster Final where they were defeated by Cahill's Antrim side.

However, Cahill surprisingly lost out to Jerry Wallace in a contest for the Antrim hurling job last month.

The senior management team will also take charge of the Armagh Under-21 team.

Previous selectors Paddy Moore and Tommy Stevenson have stepped down from their roles in Johnston's backroom team.
