Former Dublin star Niall Corcoran says he’s “chomping at the bit” to begin working with Wexford’s hurlers.

This past December saw Corcoran added to Davy Fitzgerald’s backroom team having previously worked under Eddie Brennan in Laois for a two-year stint.

Speaking in an interview with The42.ie, the Leinster SHC winner admitted to be surprised after receiving a call from Fitzgerald to join the Slaneysiders’ set-up.

“On having a chat with Davy, I was surprised the call came,” he said. “I didn’t expect it because they have some very good people involved.

“In fairness to Davy he has a very good set-up there. Some very knowledgeable coaches are already involved and for me to be involved it will hopefully add to my coaching armour and I’ll learn a huge amount from him the way he manages his players and works with the other coaches.”

He added: “I am chomping at the bit to go in and meet the players. I haven’t met them bar a few online calls. I’m just excited to get working with them on the pitch. Wexford are on a very exciting journey and they’ve proven that. They’re on the cusp of an All-Ireland title.”
