WILLIAM EGAN, Conor O’Sullivan, Cian McCarthy and Paul Haughney have been recalled to the provisional Cork hurling panel by new manager Kieran Kingston. Waterford v Cork - Munster GAA Hurling Senior Championship Semi-Final
A 33-man squad has been put together for when the hurlers return to training before Christmas, which features those four players who dropped out in Jimmy Barry-Murphy’s last year at the helm.
It also includes Aidan Walsh (right) and Damien Cahalane, who have committed to hurling for 2016, and Chris Joyce who is on the way back from a cruciate injury. However Eoin Cadogan won’t be linking up with the hurlers, instead focusing on football again in 2016. His brother Alan will be hurling however.
Conor Twomey (Newtown), Niall Cashman and Cathal Cormack (Blackrock), Will Leahy (Aghada) and Patrick O’Mahony (Midleton) are the new faces in the set-up.
Andy Walsh, Rob O’Shea, William Kearney, Jamie Coughlan, Darren McCarthy, Aidan Ryan, and Brian O’Sullivan, have not been included on the initial training panel of 33, which will be reviewed before the Waterford Crystal Tournament in January.
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed, as first revealed in Tuesday’s Evening Echo, that Frankie Flannery will be the new coach. Declan O’Sullivan is the new strength and conditioning coach and physical trainer
I think those names were expected to be recalled to the panel (Egan, O'Sull, McCarthy). Disappointed that Pa O'Callaghan isn't among them. Hopefully he will make himself available before too long.
