Let’s take a look at what’s making the headlines on KCLR and Scoreline for Wednesday, November 9th, 2022.
Well after what could be regarded as a festival of football last weekend, Scoreline turns our attention back to the small ball, as the provincial championship begins for Kilkenny and Carlow clubs.
Starting proceedings is Kilkenny’s intermediate champions Danesfort taking on Meath’s Trim in the Leinster quarter-final.
Speaking to Scoreline, Danesfort stalwart and goalkeeper Paddy Hogan outlined how crucial the injection of youth has been to their campaign.
“The younger lads have really stood up. They were absolutely immense this year. Some Savage hurling. We were pushed to the collar a couple of times, in a couple of matches, were teams got back level with us, and we just find a way to get over the line.”
That game will be live on KCLR from half 1 this Saturday
