Jack Guiney no longer part of Wexford hurling panel


By John Harrington

Jack Guiney is no longer part of the Wexford hurling panel as they prepare for their Leinster SHC first round clash with Dublin on May 20.

The Rathnure man has been hampered by a knee injury so far this year and has been released back to his club to build up his fitness.

But, according to Wexford selector Seoirse Bulfin, Guiney may yet return to the panel later in the year if he makes a full recovery.

“Jack at the moment is obviously gone off the panel because he is struggling with an injury right throughout the League,” said Bulfin. “For the time being he is back with the club.

“Being honest when you have four games in 21 days you can't really be carrying much of an injury.

“He is back there to get a bit of game time to see how he gets on. Hopefully down the line you never know what might happen.”

Wexford’s major injury doubt for that Championship opener against Dublin is forward David Dunne who sprained his ankle ligaments recently playing football for his club Davidstown-Courtnacuddy.

Dunne missed most of last year’s Championship through a combination of quad and hamstring injuries, but he’s confident his latest injury set-back isn’t a serious one.

“I've been out for two or three weeks but hopefully I'll be back in time for the first game,” said Dunne today. “That's the plan, we'll see how it goes.”
