Limerick manager John Kiely has revealed that the end of their NHL campaign doesn’t mean the door closes on opportunities for players to impress.

In fact, Kiely stressed to the Limerick Leader that there will be a number of games played in the coming weeks ahead of the Munster SHC clash against Clare in six weeks’ time.

And players will get the chance to impress the management as Kiely admitted that they are looking at the long haul and not a short term solution.

“We will have a number of different games in the coming weeks and there will still be chances for guys to impress for the championship,” said Kiely.

“This was never going to be a six-month job, more like 24-months. Look at the Galway team and ten of them played in the All-Ireland SHC final two years ago and 12 played in the semi-final last year – we are both at different stages and we just have to stay strong to our process.

“We are now best served focusing on the championship. We have six weeks for championship and I guess we are not going to be given a chance of beating Clare.”
