Davy Fitzgerald looks set to continue to remain as manager of the Wexford senior hurlers for a fourth year.
Fitzgerald has been reported to be contemplating his future as Model County boss following his side narrow loss to Tipperary by 2 points in the All-Ireland semi-final. The Hoganstand report that it was expected he would step aside, he guided Wexford to a Leinster title for the first time since 2004 this year.
The Sixemilebridge man was convinced by the players last season to stay on as manager. Some of the Wexford squad travelled down to his native Clare to show him what they meant to him to convince him to stay on at the helm. It now looks increasingly likely that the two time All-Ireland winner will oversee operations for the 2020 season. Fitzgerald probably has seen some fight in the jersey this season which probably convinced him to give it one more year. Hoganstand report that Fitzgerald has probably travelled back and forth from Clare to Wexford 100 times over the year. But he obviously sees something in the side of he wouldn’t be considering staying on. According to Hoganstand, he has agreed to a two-year deal to see if he can guide Wexford to a first All-Ireland title since 1996.
