2014 Minor manager to head heavyweight Under-21 set.

DEREK Lyons says he’s excited,energised and enthused at the task
facing him as Waterford’s new Under-21 hurling manager, an appointment which has been widely
welcomed throughout the county. The Dungarvan clubman, who steered the Deise’s minor side to the
Munster Final and All-Ireland semifinal last summer, has been handed the task of ending a six-year wait for
a Championship win at this grade. And with a tricky trip to Cork facing Waterford on Wednesday,
June 17th, Lyons is under no illusions about the task which lies ahead, but he’s in stellar company
when it comes to preparing a panel determined to end that losing streak. Bolstered by the additions of Paul Keane (Saint Molleran’s) and Donncha Enright (Abbeyside), minor selectors alongside Lyons last year, the selection team also includes Deise greats John Mullane and 1992 Under-21 All-Ireland winning captain Tony Browne.
