Wexford Senior club hurling side Faythe Harriers were dealt a major blow today…
One of the club’s stalwarts and former Wexford hurler Richie Kehoe confirmed today on Twitter that he has ruptured his Anterior Cruciate Ligament, and will miss the remainder of his club’s campaign:
“Not the results i was looking for,ruptured the ACL!! Lookin forward to the cship draw 2020 already!! Thanks to everyone who looked after me on the day and everyone who text and rang over the last few days,” Kehoe said in a Twitter post.
The injury occurred in the Harrier’s latest Senior hurling game against St Martins last Saturday. A report from The HoganStand stated that Kehoe was forced to wait in agony on the side of Taghmon/Camross’ GAA pitch for 75 minutes, as the ambulance failed to arrive, before it was eventually decided to transport the injured player in the back of a van to Wexford General Hospital.
Kehoe’s loss could prove fatal for Faythe Harriers, who have failed to claim maximum points from their opening games, getting a draw against Fethard in the opening round and losing to St Martins in the second-round.
The Harriers will play Ferns, the Rapparees and St Annes in their remaining games in Group A of the Wexford Senior Hurling Championship.
