Wexford "excited" to have Corcoran on board

Kilmacud Crokes selector Niall Corcoran

Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald says they are excited to have former Dublin hurler Niall Corcoran in their set-up for 2021.

Corcoran had been part of Eddie Brennan’s management team in Laois and following the former Kilkenny star’s departure from the O’Moore County, Fitzgerald saw an opportunity to bring the highly rated coach on board his set-up.

"We are excited about having him," the Clare native told Off The Ball. "He thinks about the game a lot in the way we ourselves would think about it and that added a lot to why we brought him in - the way he sees the game.

"I had a two-hour conversation with him in Dublin. I thought I was going up for 15, 20 minutes to have a chat and suss each other out but we ended up staying for two hours nearly.

"It was very easy to talk to him and his philosophies and what he sees and what he thinks are great so hopefully he will be an addition to us and I'm really looking forward to having him on board.

"I love to get someone new in [though], someone with a bit of enthusiasm. Niall's enthusiasm will add to what we have already. Even after getting word back from one or two of the Laois players, they really rated Niall [too]."
