Fennelly targets spring return


Kilkenny hurler Michael Fennelly hopes to return to action from his ruptured Achilles injury by next February.

Fennelly, who will miss the All-Ireland final on 4 September with the injury he suffered in the second half of the Cats' 2-19 to 2-17 semi-final replay win over Waterford last weekend, insists that he has no intention of retiring despite an injury-hit last two campaigns.

The Ballyhale Shamrocks clubman missed the 2015 Leinster Senior Hurling final against Galway with a back injury, although he did return in time to play in the final against the Tribemen and win a sixth All-Ireland title.

"I’ve had a lot of injuries; especially with the back, it’s been a rough few years," Fennelly told Ireland AM on TV3.

"I’ve been here before but I’ve no doubt it’ll come back right again. We’ll just see how it is. You can’t rule out anything.

"If your body can’t cope with the load that carries it during the season, you might have to step away from it but we’ll cross that bridge. I’ve no intention of retiring at the moment.

"Fingers crossed everything will go well with that [operation]. Six weeks then in a cast and then another six to eight weeks in a boot and hopefully then by next February or March I’ll be back playing a bit of sport."
