Antrim boss Liam Bradley has ended speculation linking him with the vacant Derry managerial post by committing his future to the Saffrons.

The Derry native had been touted as a possible replacement for Damian Cassidy whose resignation after two years in charge was announced on Friday.

Bradley has a further year of his Antrim contract to run and said he would honour that commitment.

"I intend to stay for the full three years of my contract," said Bradley.

The Glenullin man's two years in charge of the Saffrons have seen them reach their first Ulster final since 1970 and win successive promotions in the National League.

Bradley had indicated an interest in the Derry job two years ago but was overlooked in favour of Bellaghy man Cassidy.

The Antrim boss did not rule out the possibility of managing his native county in the future.

"It's not that I don't want to manage Derry, but it's not for me at this present time," he told the Irish News.

"I'm building a team in Antrim and we feel we're going places - that's where I'll be next year," he added.

Other names linked to the post include John Brennan, Brian McIver, Damien Barton and Niall Conway.

Among those from outside the county who may be considered are Malachy O'Rourke and Seamus McEnaney.
