Despite the late start to proceedings, Cleere’s been telling us they’ve got plenty of match experience under their belts already this year.
“We had six or seven challenge matches over the last couple of months, which have been brilliant for us. We played the Kilkenny intermediates, Wexford intermediates, Waterford, and SETU Carlow on a couple of occasions, so we had some really good challenge matches.”
“We learned a huge amount, I suppose about ourselves as a management group and the players. While there are only three competitive games for us in the league, we have had plenty of games so we are well-ready and well-tuned to hit the ground running.”
