Crit­i­cism of ‘self­ish’ clubs

“It sick­ens me” says Kenny

Bray People - - SPORT -

at County Build­ings WICK­LOW Games man­ager Hugh Kenny lashed out at “self­ish’ clubs in Wick­low who are not do­ing enough to send play­ers to academy squads in hurl­ing and foot­ball.

The Balt­in­glass na­tive de­scribed how it “sick­ens” him to think that play­ers in Wick­low won’t com­mit to the squads and he says that clubs need to take a deep look at them­selves.

“Clubs must have a deep look at them­selves and ask the ques­tion am I do­ing enough to en­cour­age all our play­ers to be part of an Academy Squad hurl­ing and foot­ball pan­els.

“Play­ers will only de­velop play­ing and train­ing with county squad and in turn they will

come back as bet­ter club play­ers. There should be no fear in send­ing play­ers to the County Academy. Just think how much bet­ter the per­for­mance of any Wick­low teams would be if all clubs had their best play­ers play­ing. This would not hap­pen in any other county in Ire­land.

“It sick­ens me to think that play­ers won’t com­mit. For one year, let it be 2015, that ev­ery club will support this and help their play­ers to play for Wick­low.

“Self­ish clubs are not think­ing of the big­ger pic­ture. Wick­low are our Flag­ship team once they raise it will con­trib­ute to ris­ing the pro­file at club level.
