Steady Keddy is look­ing for more

Bray People - - SPORT - RO­NAN KEDDY

WITH per­sonal hon­ours se­cured, Ro­nan Keddy is now hunt­ing down team hon­ours in 2013.

The Kil­coole man was crowned the Wicklow hurler of the year for the 2012 sea­son but his de­light on a per­sonal level was over­shad­owed by the team's lack of sil­ver­ware, and he is des­per­ate to make amends for that over the coming sea­son.

'I was de­lighted. I wasn't ex­pect­ing to win it, it was a great shock. It was a great hon­our to win an award es­pe­cially when you're play­ing with so many good play­ers.

‘It really was a great hon­our and priv­i­lege to win it. But it's all about win­ning the main thing now this year; the Christy Ring Cup. We set out to make sure we stayed up in the league (last sea­son) es­pe­cially hav­ing been pro­moted and we man­aged to do that so I sup­pose our sec­ond goal was to win the Christy Ring Cup and we didn't man­age to do that so there's still a good bit left to do this year.'

While things may have been slightly dis­ap­point­ing from a team point of view; he did de­clare him­self sat­is­fied with his own per­sonal show­ings.

'It was one of my bet­ter sea­sons, I've been play­ing for a good few years at this stage and I've got­ten a good bit of ex­pe­ri­ence so it's about time that I started per­form­ing a lit­tle bit bet­ter.'

Keddy shall not be rest­ing on his lau­rels though and he in­tends to up his game in 2013.

'You can never be happy with where you've got, you al­ways go into it think­ing of how you're go­ing to im­prove so ob­vi­ously last year we did well but this year we have to push on and do that bit bet­ter and go and win the Christy Ring.'
