Fitzgerald has also announced his backroom team with former county star Keith Rossiter and ex-Kilkenny goalkeeper PJ Ryan set to play key roles.

2015 Leinster club winner Rossiter, who will line out for his club Oulart-the-Ballagh against Offaly champions St Rynagh’s in this Sunday’s AIB Leinster senior club hurling championship tie, will be involved in a part-time coaching capacity, with 2009 All-Ireland final man-of-the-match Ryan brought in to coach the Wexford goalkeepers.

Former U21 manager JJ Doyle is the local link but Fitzgerald is also bringing two of his own former backroom men with him Páraic Fanning and Seoirse Bulfin.

Bulfin worked alongside Fitzgerald at third-level with Limerick IT, and also with the Waterford and Clare inter-county teams, while Fanning was a member of Fitzgerald’s backroom team when he was in charge of the Déise.

The Sixmilebridge native has also brought in three strength and conditioning coaches Jimmy Payne, Darren Siggins and Ross Dunphy.

Payne moves with Bulfin from the Clare set-up to join Fitzgerald, while Siggins and Dunphy both worked for Seamus Plunkett during his time as Laois manager.

Dunphy has also worked with the Tipperary and Dublin senior hurling teams in recent times.
