Ballyhale Shamrocks Senior Hurler Colin Fennelly says he is making the most of his playing time in games especially with the club having suffered long-term injuries to key players over the years.
Speaking ahead of Saturday evening’s All-Ireland Senior Club Championship Semi-Final clash against Ballygunner, Colin says it’s a massive for the youngsters coming through to strengthen the squad.
He said “You don’t actually know how many years you have left between injury and stuff. You see Henry Shefflin, he was player of the year I think when he was 32 and all of a shot he was injured for the next 3 years so he was, and all of a shot he was finished and like he is lucky to be back in as manager of Ballyhale”.
“You even see my own brother Michael (Fennelly), he’s just plagued with injury for years, you just kind of take what you can when you can and we are able to do that with Ballyhale at the moment, we are very lucky there with the Minors winning, Under-21’s after winning back to back there now so it’s a fantastic achievement so far”.
Colin said “You can see in our team we have experienced lads and the younger lads and it’s just massive having the younger lads coming through in the team”.
