Wexford will be hoping to build on last year’s success and a competitive squad is crucial to that..
According to this week’s Wexford People, Wexford Senior hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald has added six new faces to his panel.
One of the most-notable new additions to the current panel of 37 is a familiar face for Wexford hurling fans, as Davidstown-Cortnacuddy’s Andrew Shore has been called into Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford panel.
Other players called into the squad are Mikey Dwyer (Fethard), Aidan Rochford (St Annes), Jack Cullen (Naomh Eanna), Conall Clancy (Faythe Harriers), and James Lawlor (Ferns).
Dwyer, who was previously involved with the Wexford footballers, has been plying his trade in rugby circles of late. It’s his first call into Fitzgerald’s hurling squad, and his direct attacking runs could, like Shore, add an important dimension to Fitzgerald’s team.
Rochford has impressed throughout the year, almost guiding his club-team St Annes to glory in the Wexford Senior Hurling Championship.
Similarly, Naomh Eanna’s Jack Cullen also recieves his first call-up and will be a welcomed addition to the panel, after impressing this year, while he was one of the stand-out performers for the Naomh Eanna winning championship team of 2018.
Faythe Harriers clubman Clancy was particularly impressive throughout Wexford’s u-20 games last season, while he was also one of the stand-out performers for his club.
James Lawlor, a Ferns-St Aidans club-man, will join Mark Fanning and Eanna Martin to battle it out for the number one spot between the posts.
