WEXFORD ARE STRONGLY considering an appeal after manager Davy Fitzgerald was slapped with an eight-week ban by GAA disciplinary chiefs following last Sunday’s Allianz Hurling League semi-final against Tipperary at Nowlan Park.Team manager Fitzgerald has been handed a stiff penalty which will see him banned from the touchline for the Leinster SHC quarter-final against a round-robin qualifier at the end of May – and a possible provincial semi-final clash with Kilkenny on 10 June.Wexford were hopeful that Fitzgerald would receive just a one-match ban, which would have allowed him to patrol the touchline against the Cats, presuming the Slaneysiders win their opening game on 27/28 May.But Fitzgerald has been charged with an infraction in chapter 7 of the GAA’s Official Guide, dealing with enforcement of rules/arbitration and under the heading ‘misconduct at games by team officials.’ By Jackie Cahill Follow us: the42.ie **Breaking**8 weeks for Davy Fitz, touchline ban for Leinster SHC opener and would be in stands for possible KK game too on June 10 #GAA— Jackie Cahill (@cahilljackie) April 20, 2017 Davy Fitzgerald clashes with Tipperary hurler Jason Forde.
