Brian Cody recently retired from his role as manager of the Kilkenny Senior Hurling team…
The Kilkenny man will go down as a legend of the game and Wexford’s Lee Chin echoed those sentiments.
Speaking at the launch of Budweiser as the official beer of the Aer Lingus College Football Classic, Wexford’s Lee Chin gave high praise for the Kilkenny man:
“It was a sad day. I watched Brian and played against Brian in the middle of my career, and I have seen Brian now retire.”
“What a servant he has been, and what a role model. He’s a guy that I deeply admire and I always respected him. I felt that Brian had that respect for me, and we would often have a handshake after a game and a little quiet word.
“You would often hear about Brian and how he runs his camp and it is quite intriguing at times. But I always got a warm welcome from Brian anytime after games, I really do wish him all the best.”
“I know he is married to a Wexford woman too, so I hope he rides off into the sunset now and enjoys his time off.”
“He would have that quiet word that always meant a lot to me.”
“When you had Brian Cody on the sideline you always knew what his side were going to bring. There was no let up in Brian, and he was as ruthless as they came.”
Over the last few years, Lee Chin has been instrumental to Wexford’s upper edge over Kilkenny. The last time the pair met was in the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship, where Chin helped his Wexford side to defeat Kilkenny in Nowlan Park.
