Phelan calls for Fagan Waterford call up

De La Salle manager Brian Phelan is in no doubt that Meath native Jack Fagan deserves a call up to the Waterford senior hurling squad.

Fagan transferred to the Waterford city side from his native Rathmolyon in 2016 and was on the Waterford under-21 squad the following year.

Having impressed with the club in 2018, it was thought that Fagan may get a call up last year, but instead he spent the year in Australia.

However, he has returned and scored 0-11 in De La Salle’s SHC win over Lismore last weekend.

The performance has led to his club manager and former Waterford hurler Phelan to call for an inter-county call up.

“He was away in Australia last year, but that man deserves to be on the Waterford panel. Hopefully he might get a call up,” said Phelan.

“Looking at a lot of the games over the weekend, he was the best player on show. He’s mad to get on it, we’ll see what happens.”
