Seamus 'Cheddar' Plunkett has stepped down as manager of the Laois senior hurling team.

Cheddar managed the senior side for four years, with the highpoint being Laois' Leinster Championship win over Offaly at O'Moore Park last year.

This year Laois exited the Leinster championship at the hands of Offaly, before going down to Clare by 5-32 to 0-12 in the qualifiers. 

The County Board made the announcement through a tweet and said that the county executive will meet in the next few days to start the procedure to appoint a new manager.
