Davy Fitzgerald is set to deliver the news that all Wexford hurling fans have been praying for by committing his future to the Yellowbelly cause for another year.
There had been much speculation that the former Waterford and Clare manager might call it a day following Wexford’s agonising All-Ireland SHC semi-final defeat to Tipperary in July.
After guiding them to their first Leinster title in 15 years, there was speculation that he might feel it was as far as he could go with the squad.
However, the players made it clear that they wanted him to stay and he looks set to sign on for another year at least over the coming days.
Meanwhile, Donal Moloney and Gerry O'Connor look set to stay at the helm in Fitzgerald’s native county despite a disappointing campaign for the Banner faithful.
There had been speculation that O'Connor would leave due to work commitments, but the pair look set to be ratified by the Clare County Board, with possible changes to their backroom team.
