Next up for Davy Fitzgerald and the Wexford Senior hurlers is a trip to neighbours Kilkenny.

They will have to prepare without two panel members ahead of the clash after two members of Davy Fitzgerald’s panel have been tested Covid-19 positive.

“We know at the moment that there are two players that have tested positive.”

“At the moment I wouldn’t like to comment more for the privacy of information, but I don’t think we’re overly concerned beyond that at this present time,” Wexford GAA Chairman Michael Martin said.

As per a report on South East Radio today, this weekend’s Allianz League clash will still be going ahead despite the positive cases in the camp.

Wexford GAA Chairman highlighted how Wexford will have to follow all proceduces, but how he remains hopeful that the game will be going ahead.

“We will encourage all players to err on the side of caution, to be tested, so that we have a clearer picture of where things are at. That’s just to be cautious about it,” he also said.

The Allianz Hurling League Round 3 clash between Kilkenny and Wexford will take place on May 23rd, Nowlan Park, at 2pm.

In other news, a member of Wexford’s Senior Camogie squad has tested positive, and additionally, a member of the Wexford Ladies Football panel has received a positive test.
