The FA of Ireland "is set to announce" MARTIN O'NEILL and ROY KEANE as its new management team following the departure of GIOVANNI TRAPATTONI. It comes "following an unsuccessful World Cup qualifying campaign that saw Italian Trapattoni depart as his side finished in fourth place in Group C behind Germany, Sweden and Austria" (REUTERS, 11/4). ... Former England coach DAVID LLOYD "has been appointed as the president of the Professional Cricketers' Association." Lloyd, who is now best known for his work as a TV commentator and is a columnist for Sportsmail, takes over from CHRIS BROAD, "whose two-year term has come to an end" (London DAILY MAIL, 11/4).
