Joint Wexford hurling captain Matthew O’Hanlon wasn’t shying away from highlighting the Model County’s desire to get Davy Fitzgerald back for another season…
Speaking to The Irish Mirror, St James clubman Matt O’Hanlon said:
“The bond that we have with him is something special. We’re really hoping that he sticks with us because I think he’s the man to bring us to the next level. That’s all I can say at the moment, I don’t know any more.”
“But Davy has to weigh it up. The commute from Clare to Wexford isn’t easy and he would have spoken about it before.”
“I was part of that group last year that went down, it’s one of those roads that happens to avoid any main motorway.
“But as I said, we’re hopeful, we really want him back and I think he knows that. All of the players, other backroom staff and the county board are firmly behind him.
“So the door is open to come back and we’re really hoping that he does.”
“We’re willing to do whatever it takes to get our man back. Look, he knows how highly we regard him and how much we respect him and how we support him.”
It remains unknown whether Fitzgerald will return to the Yellowbellies for another year, with the long-distance commute to and from Sixmilebridge cited as the major reason for the Clare native’s doubts.
