Full-time of­fi­cer needed

Bray People - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW needs a full-time hurl­ing of­fi­cer. So says Carnew Em­mets club man Jim Bob Doyle in his re­port to Con­ven­tion.

“Look­ing to the fu­ture I can only see one thing. Wick­low hurl­ing needs a full-time hurl­ing per­son,” he wrote.

“Our boys are cry­ing out for some­one whose job would be to look at all things to im­prove hurl­ing in the county and to an­swer to a com­mit­tee that their sole aim is for the bet­ter­ment of hurl­ing in Wick­low.

“This has to be done and with the fi­nance in Wick- low un­der pres­sure Croke Park and Le­in­ster coun­cil will have to act on it.

“Their an­swer will be that we al­ready have six full­time staff in place. We need a hurl­ing de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer. More than likely their re­ply will say they can’t af­ford it. “How­ever, our an­swer will be that they can! “It’s more im­por­tant for the fu­ture of hurl­ing than it is to start pay­ing the play­ers.

“Our foot­ball clubs will prob­a­bly say they need a foot­ball de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer. But with 39 foot­ball clubs, they should be strong enough,” he wrote pas­sion­ately.
