CLAIRE Wehrley, a teacher in St Flannan’s College in Ennis, has been appointed manager of this year’s North Munster under 14 team. Wehrley has put together a formi- dable management team, which also includes Eric Nelligan of Limerick and Richard Grimes of St Caimin’s, Shannon. The trio have been suc- cessful in bringing the under 15 inter provincial schools title to Munster in 2005 and 2006 and Wehrley believes

they are capable of delivering the goods once more.

“I have two very capable peo- ple working with me in Richard (Grimes) and Eric (Nelligan). They have coached the Munster under 15 schools team for around 7 years now, and I have been involved for two. It is a good management team. We work well together and have proved that we can be successful.”

Wehrley outlines their aims for the upcoming year, “This year for the under 14s we are hoping to try and

get an insight into the talent that’s out there. There will be talent we will not have been seen before. We want to identify emerging talent, look to de- velop the players, improve them and hopefully start them on a successful career which will eventually lead to inclusion on under 16 and under 18 squads into the future.”

“We would have an idea of some players playing at that level. Howev- er, we know there are so many play- ers out there who we will not have seen before and we want to encour-

age everyone to come along.”

Wehrley was involved in the Gaynor Cup last year and she is grateful for the experience.

“T think Munster will be in with a shout at each age level. Obviously the under 14s is the one I will be con- centrating on and I would fancy our chances, especially when you look at the runner-up spot we achieved last year.”
