Kelly And Co Feeling Primed For Division One Challenge

Jason Sampson is underlining the players' excitement ahead of their return to Division One.

The Offaly Senior hurlers make their bow in Division One of the National Hurling League this weekend.

Davy Fitzgerald and the Waterford hurlers are heading to Tullamore to take on last year's Division 2A champions.

A league campaign against the likes of Waterford, Kilkenny, Clare, Cork, and Wexford will provide Johnny Kelly's side with a raft of testing moments.

However the Offaly manager says his side will look to strike a balance between adapting to the opposition and playing their game.

Kelly begins his preview of this weekend's game by telling David Hollywood his players are eager to get going:

Jason Sampson has been selected to captain the county for the 2024 season after been given the responsibility last year.

He looks forward to Sunday's game with David Hollywood:

Throw in at Glenisk O'Connor Park is set for 2pm on Sunday.

Elsewhere in hurling, Westmeath face Galway in Salthill, while in Division 2A it's Laois against Down in Laois Hire O'Moore Park.
