Additions to both U-21 backrooms

Wexford Under-21 hurling manager, J.J. Doyle, has introduced two new selectors to his backroom team.
Experienced former players, Johnny Murphy (Crossabeg-Ballymurn) and John O'Connor (St. Martin's), have joined Doyle at the helm of affairs, along with outgoing duo Tommy Roche (Marshalstown-Castledockrell) and Gerry McQuaid (trainer).
They come in instead of Kevin Kennedy (Oulart-The Ballagh), who is part of the new Wicklow Senior hurling backroom team along with Martin Storey, and Larry Murphy (Cloughbawn).
Meanwhile, Wexford's lone football All Star, Matty Forde (Kilanerin), is one of five selectors for the Under-21 county team. He links up with Senior manager David Power (Kilsheelan-Kilcash, Tipperary), Michael Walsh (St. Martin's), John Power (Crossabeg-Ballymurn) and another newcomer, John Nolan, who helped to guide St. James' to their first Senior football title.
Nolan, like Power, is a native of Dublin and his home club is St. Anne's (Bohernabreena). A teacher in Adamstown, he is living in the north of the county.
The footballers will play in a tournament hosted by Laois as a championship warm-up.
