Fitzgerald wants league revamped

Clare manager Davy Fitzgerald has called for the Allianz Hurling League to be revamped.

After dropping down to Division 1B last year, the Banner County will return to the top tier in 2017, but Fitzgerald believes there should be more than six teams in Division 1A and he has urged officials to look at the structure of the league.

"I still think the whole structure should be changed. I don't believe ourselves and Limerick should have been down there in 1B," Fitzgerald said in the wake of the Banner County's 1-19 to 0-18 win over Limerick.

"I would love to see more teams in Division 1A. It's a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. I'd encourage them to look at that again. Let's have more teams up there."

Clare won all five of their Division 1B games and must now prepare for a quarter-final against Tipperary.

Fitzgerald is pleased with how his team have played this season but has warned they will need to improve ahead of the Championship.

"Our objective was to win as many games as we could and to get out of this division," Fitzgerald is quoted as saying in the Irish Sun. "We also wanted to perform well here in our own house in Ennis. We did what we had to do.

"I was happy with the tackling, the blocking, they tried to do the right things all the time. We still have a few things to work on. The one thing that I've said over the last two years - our enthusiasm. I don't think it's been the same.

"I don't think we're near the top three or four, I'm fairly certain of that.

We've two or three months to work on that. The Championship is what counts. That's what we all have to get ready for."
