Whilst most of the focus will undoubtedly be on the senior hurlers first championship outing against Offaly in Nowlan Park on Saturday evening the footballers travel to Ruislip where they will take on London in Round 2 of the British Junior Championship on Sunday with a 2pm throw in. In their first outing in Nowlan Park last weekend they were defeated by Warwickshire on a 0-10 to 1-2 scoreline. But Kilkenny could have been much closer to their opponents had they converted more of the chances in front of goal. No doubt coach Christy Walsh and his selectors have been working on this aspect of play at training. Best of luck to the team in London.
