Benji Whelan is expected to be ratified as the new Déise Senior Football manager at tonight’s County Board meeting.
The Kilmacthomas native is set to take over from Tom McGlinchey who stepped down following Waterford’s Championship exit to Monaghan in the summer.
Benji led The Nire to two Co. senior football titles in recent seasons, where they also qualified for Munster Finals losing to Dr. Crokes from Kerry on both occasions.
Waterford recorded their first Championship win since 2011 earlier this summer, when they overcame Wexford in June in the opening round of the All-Ireland Senior football Qualifiers.
All clubs will attend tonight’s meeting which takes place in Lawlor’s Hotel, Dungarvan.
