Wexford needed a result against Kilkenny to avoid relegation to the Joe McDonagh Cup. And thankfully for Wexford supporters, they got over the line and won by two points…
It was a sensational performance by the Wexford team. They never gave up and instead, they stood up when it mattered most in a crucial tie.
Multiple Wexford players stood up on the day to ensure Wexford won by two points and wouldn’t be relegated. One Wexford player, in particular, that stood up was Wexford’s captain, Lee Chin.
Chin’s performance on the day, whereby he scored 1-10, was hailed as “outstanding” by former Wexford GAA player Tom Dempsey. After his performance, Dempsey credited Chin with being one of the best Wexford players over the last 30 years. Chin was one Wexford player to make it onto the GAA.ie’s Hurling Team of the Week.
The other Wexford Senior hurler who was named on the GAA.ie’s Team of the Week was St Anne’s clubman, Dee O’Keeffe, who has been named wing-back on the team.
Many more Wexford hurlers could have been named on the team; both Simon Donohoe and Liam Og McGovern, who scored 2-01 from play, can feel hard done by. But, it’s probably the last thing on their minds too.
In related news, Lee Chin has also been nominated as the GAA Hurler of the Week.
Wexford’s Lee Chin has been nominated alongside Limerick’s Diarmaid Byrnes, and Carlow’s Paddy Boland. The voting process is simple: like their image of Lee Chin on the GAA’s official Instagram story.
