Davy Fitzgerald has been confirmed as the new manager of the Wexford hurling senior team.
The former Clare boss –who stepped down from his role two weeks ago – joins Wexford on a three-year contract, with a review to take place after the first two years.
Fitzgerald, despite been ruled out for the position last week, replaces Liam Dunne who spent five years with the Model County.
The All-Ireland winning manager spoke of his new role, saying: "I am really excited about this opportunity with Wexford, and I was honoured to be asked to accept the job. It’s a new challenge for me, and I’m really looking forward to it."
Wexford County board chairman, Diarmuid Devereux, suggested that appointing Fitzgerald represents a huge ‘coup’ for his county.
"He is an ideal fit for our young senior hurling squad, and I am excited about the prospects for the future." He said.
"The initial aim will be for Wexford to move from Division 1B of the National Hurling League up to Division 1A, and then to build on that."
