A Coronavirus pandemic and now this…
It’s bad news for Wexford hurling fans and for fans of the GAA.
Clare native Davy Fitzgerald cannot commit to the cause of Wexford hurling any longer.
Speaking to Liam Spratt of South East Radio, the Banner man cited family, work and travel commitments.
“We’ll see how this year goes. But I’m gone after that Liam, unfortunately, It’s too much. Family, work, everything….”
“I have to say one thing though, those lads are absolutely brilliant. We’ll give it one last blast when this virus goes away. They’re still working away at home.”
Fitzgerald announced his decision today, April 1.
The news may come as a shock to many, as the Clare native had previously stated he’ll be staying on with the Wexford hurlers until 2021.
It’s expected that John Meyler, Derek McGrath and Anthony Daly will be in a three-way race for the role.
