A new coach with the Wexford Senior hurlers believes we are close to All-Ireland title…
New Wexford Senior hurling coach Niall Corcoran admittedly is excited to get into the swing of things with Davy Fitzgerald’s squad.
“That’s what Wexford and Davy’s coaches have done, they’ve developed that style further. That for me is the intriguing bit.”
“What have they done and how have they done it? Because the players seem to be really bought into Davy, the coaches and the style of play. That’s the important bit for me to be honest.”
“I am chomping at the bit to go in and meet the players,” he continues. “I haven’t met them bar a few online calls. I’m just excited to get working with them on the pitch. Wexford are on a very exciting journey and they’ve proven that. They’re on the cusp of an All-Ireland title.”
Wexford last won the elusive All-Ireland hurling title in 1996. In 2019, they pushed close to a spot in the All-Ireland final after they narrowly lost to fourteen-men Tipperary, who would eventually be crowned champions.
Corcoran will be a welcomed asset to Fitzgerald’s backroom team after former Clare hurler Brendan Bugler called time on his stint with the Wexford Senior hurling set-up.
Like Corcoran, we are all hoping that he hurling and football action can return to our screens and fields soon.
