Football role will be fun – Doyle


Kevin Doyle is looking forward to working with Wexford's footballers.

Former Ireland Doyle has joined the Wexford under-20 management team in an advisory role.

The 34-year-old retired from soccer last September on medical advice after suffering bouts of concussion, but he played Gaelic football for Adamstown in his youth and also Good Counsel in New Ross at school level.

The Wexford-born striker is friends with former Wexford senior football and under-20 selector Eric Bradley. He scored 14 goals in 63 appearances for Ireland, making his debut against Sweden in a friendly in 2006.

He told Off The Ball how he came to switch codes: "[Eric] was a former inter-county footballer and he's involved with the under-20s.

"He rang a few weeks ago wondering if I'd go in and speak with the lads and help out a few nights; just bring a bit of publicity and something else to it.

"I haven't been watching a whole lot of gaelic football over the years, since I stopped playing. It'll be fun, it'll be fun to see something a bit different and help in whatever way I can.

"I don't know what I'm going to add to the mix but at least we're talking about it."

eir Sport has live and exclusive coverage of 17 Saturday matches in the 2018 Allianz Football and Hurling Leagues. Coverage continues on Saturday, 17 February with 2016 All-Ireland winners Tipperary hosting Wexford at Semple Stadium in hurling's Division 1A [live on eir Sport 2, throw in 7pm], and Limerick facing Dublin at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick in Division 1B [live on eir Sport 1, throw-in 7pm].
