Benny Coulter has decided against a return to inter-county football.

The Mayobridge clubman had retired in 2014 but as recently as this month, the new Down manager Eamon Burns was convinced that the 2010 All Star was set to stage a comeback.

However, Coulter tweeted this morning to say he will focus solely on club football in 2016, with no return to the red and black jersey.
