Doran leaves Wexford squad

Pat Doran's failure to break into the Wexford squad for last Sunday's postponed All-Ireland SHC quarter-final against Tipperary has resulted in him leaving the extended Model county panel.

Pat Doran's failure to break into the Wexford squad for last Sunday's postponed All-Ireland SHC quarter-final against Tipperary has resulted in him leaving the extended Model county panel.

Having notified Wexford manager John Meyler of his decision to quit, Doran did not turn up for training at the weekend.

The Buffers Alley clubman was omitted from the 30-man panel for the Tipperary game.

Doran scored 1-5 in the recent Leinster intermediate final which ended in a 2-11 to 1-12 victory for Wexford over Kilkenny, but has failed to make his mark at senior level this season.

Meanwhile, Meyler is expected to name the same team he chose for the postponed fixture for this Saturday's showdown with Tipperary.

That means three changes to the side that lost the Leinster senior decider to Kilkenny, with Rory McCarthy, Mitch Jordan and Barry Lambert each earning a recall.

Midfielder Kevin Kavanagh, whose old groin injury has flared up again, and forward Stephen Doyle, who has an ankle knock, both remain sidelined while Glynn-Barntown attacker Paul Carley injured his back in training last weekend.
