Powter blow for Cork, UCC

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GAA -

Cork foot­ball man­ager Ro­nan Mccarthy has shipped an early sea­son blow with con­fir­ma­tion that Dou­glas star­let Seanie Powter will be out for up to five weeks with a ham­string tear.

The in­jury, sus­tained in last Satur­day’s open­ing Na­tional League de­feat to Tip­per­ary at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, could rule last sea­son’s Young Foot­baller of the year nom­i­nee out of the next four Al­lianz League games, up to and in­clud­ing the trip to Meath at the be­gin­ning of March. Powter’s ab­sence will also be keenly felt by UCC’S Siger­son Cup man­age­ment and squad, with a quar­ter-fi­nal sched­uled next week against NUIG Gal­way, fol­low­ing yes­ter­day’s nar­row de­feat of Garda Col­lege in the first round. Powter will miss the rest of the third-level col­lege cham­pi­onship.
