Watch: player bounced off team physio in Wexford!

Kilanerin physio and former Wexford footballer Jim D'Arcy braces himself for a shoulder against St James'!

There was a comical moment during last weekend's Wexford SFC quarter-final between Kilanerin and St James' at Innovate Wexford Park.

During a break in play, the Kilanerin physio and former Wexford footballer Jim D’Arcy had entered the field and was involved in a brief exchange with a St James' player before he made his way back to the sideline. As he was doing so, another St James' player came running in his direction and ended up hitting him a shoulder, but the teak-tough physio stood his ground and sent him flying. 

However, it is now said that the corner back was running for a short kick out when he collided with D'Arcy.

A hilarious video of the incident was posted on the Mayo 4 Sam Photobombers Facebook page during the week and has already racked up 255,000 views.

For the record, newly-promoted Kilanerin won the game and have been drawn against St Martin's in the county semi-final.
