Hurlers 2015

Kildare 1-16 Wicklow 1-17 Hawkfield, Newbridge, Kildare.

As usual these teams served up a nail biter. Wicklow fell 1-1 behind very early on, but hit back straight away with an O'Brien ( I think) goal. We were about 3 up at half time. Second half started very slowly and allowed Kildare back into it, due to a combination of punting the ball up the pitch and good Kildare play. Once however we started moving it with some thought things got a bit better. Moorehouse and Lee got equalizing scores, cannot remember who got the winner. Kildare had a goal disallowed in injury time for a square infringement, but in truth either team could have won it.

Team per sheet : Kennedy O'Brien/Kelly/Keane Kavanagh/Henderson/Cuddihy Kearns/Connors Byrne/O'Neill/Staunton Lee/O'Brien/Nugent

Man of the match (for me ) : Chester Kelly

What happened in Trim yesterday, I heard this morning there was some kind of incident on the line,and Meath and Wicklow could be in hot water over it.

Put up a post earlier explaining what happened from a wicklow point of view. For some reason it was not included on the forum even though some of the national papers used more detail than I did. Safe to say this was a disgrace and answers will be needed.

Good luck to the hurlers today,games between Carlow and Wicklow are tight affairs and home advantage counts for very little,it usually boils down to who keeps 15 players on the field.Carlow have never been the most disciplined especially if things are going again them,so keeping the head under pressure is the key.

Leighten Glynn received a straight red today. Is the suspension confined to hurling or does it impact the football code.

Wicklows discipline is gonna cost them another game today. 2 weeks in a row straight red cards.

1686213 Kildare 1-16 Wicklow 1-17 Hawkfield, Newbridge, Kildare.

It appears the game fell flat for Wicklow to day sponger after the above result, Kildare came out and scored an impressive
0-22 against an always tenatious Meath, so what happened.

Was the red card justified,what was it for,looking at the score I doubt if we would have got anything out of the game anyway. It looks like we could be heading back to 2b.Glynn will miss next two games unless there is an appeal put in.

Kerry / Derry ended in a draw, we would have to beat one of them at least.

Going to be a tough season.

All i'm saying is, Red card or not Glynn or no Glynn that is not the Wicklow team that beat an up and coming Kildare side a couple of weeks ago.

Wicklow, I feel will struggle this season. Glynn's loss will be massive.

Glynn's loss by all accounts will be massive but the lads got to this division without him and have done well without him for the last number of years. I don't think we should dwell too much on his absence since we still have a lot of quality players on that squad to survive in this league. Getting to stay in 2A is progress and rewarding by all means. If Glynn misses the next 2 games its very unlucky indeed but shouldn't affect us drastically in the overall scheme of things. At least we will have him as our secret weapon for the Christy Ring and we can really push for winning that this year.

The injuries to Mikey Lee and Chester will have a significantly greater impact than the loss of Leighton. Any news on them?
