A change of players won't make a great deal of difference. It's a change of attitude which is needed.

Hurling

A NUMBER of players who formed part of the Cork senior hurling team and squad this season have been omitted from the plans for the foreseeable future.

Kieran Kingston’s management team are putting a strong emphasis on youth for the new season and, with that in mind, they have drawn up a preliminary squad that may be added to when the provincial club series comes to an end. Aidan Walsh has already stated his intention to concentrate on football next season, while William Egan, Will Leahy, Michael Russell, Niall Cashman and John Cronin have all been omitted. Daniel Kearney is also taking some time out while rehabbing from an injury, but he should be back in for the NHL.

The management are keen to stress that the panel remains open-ended as they look to a number of very promising younger guns. Charleville’s Darragh Fitzgibbon, Kingston’s son Shane, Blarney’s Mark Coleman, the Rockies’ Michael O’Halloran and Shane O’Keeffe, Carrigaline’s David Griffin, Erins Own’s Robbie O’Flynn (above) and Jack Sheehan, Valley Rovers’ Chris O’Leary and Newcestown’s Luke Meade are all going to be on the training squad going forward.

They will be joined by Michael Cahalane from Bandon (below) when their involvement in the Munster club IHC. The former dual minor hadn’t played in two seasons due to a medical issue until his return to club duties in recent months.

However Ballyhea’s Pa O’Callaghan has declined an invitation to join the squad, preferring to concentrate on club matters. The powerful forward has excelled for Ballyhea on club duty and also showed up well for the Cork U21s in their defeat to Limerick last summer.

The management are also believed to be interested in some players who are still involved with their clubs in the provincial club series and they will be monitored closely in those games over the coming weeks.

The players are currently doing some pre-season preparatory work themselves but there will no official training until December 1, the official date for the county to return. No decision has yet been taken on whether or not the county will participate in the Munster League at the start of January. However, it is believed that they will participate in it before the commencement of the national league.

Cork will have three home games in the secondary competition, Dublin, Clare and Tipperary while they will be away to Kilkenny and Waterford. There will be an obvious priority to win the first two home games against Clare, who will have a new management team in charge which includes former Cork star Donal Óg Cusack, and Ger Cunningham’s Dublin.

This is basically throwing in the towel on the next 3 years at least and introducing what they feel is the best of the youngsters. Cant blame them. Cork hurling is totally fucked right now

Kearney expected to join back up in Spring after some rehab and time off.

A bit surprised that John Cronin was dropped as I thought he showed promise last year.

Great to see Michael Cahalane returning to this level.

What are the chances 90% of these new lads will be dropped this time next year for a whole raft of other new lads?

I think there is every chance that will be the case. It is impossible to see a logical basis for adding players to the panel or dropping players from the panel.
In my opinion, Shane O'Neill, Pat Cronin, Shane Murphy and William Egan should never have been dropped.

It's well known that Egan has a bit of a swelled head (they don't call him William Ego for nothing). The others I can't comment on.
