Malone will be joined by Elite Development Officers Colm McMahon
and Greig Oliver
on the coaching panel and outgoing Head Coach Ian Costello
will act as the senior team co-ordinator in continuing the close ties between the senior and A squad. Former Munster U20s Team Manager Alan Miller
takes over the role of match-day Team Manager.
The Munster A squad open their 2013/14 campaign when they take on Connacht A
in their first Interprovincial game in Musgrave Park
next Wednesday September 11th at 5pm
, and they commence their British & Irish Cup action in October with fixtures listed here.
The Munster A squad has provided the ideal outlet to promote and further develop Munster’s up and coming talent with Ronan O’Mahony
a clear example of this. O’Mahony who after completing three years in the academy was rewarded with a senior contract for season 13/14 off the back of impressive Munster A performances. He has made 18 appearances at B&I Cup level, scoring four tries and his form continued last week against London Irish when scoring a hat-trick in Musgrave Park.
All support is welcome at Musgrave Park next Wednesday with the latest offerings of Munster’s young talent on show.
