For Foot's Sake

King Henry probably won't be fit for Kilkenny's first Championship game

The nine-time All-Ireland winner has a stress fracture in his left foot.

HENRY SHEFFLIN ADMITS that he is unlikely to be fit in time for Kilkenny’s Leinster Championship opener.

The nine-time All-Ireland winner is still recovering from a stress fracture in his left foot and faces a race against time before the Cats’ game against Offaly on 7 June.

Shefflin was wearing a protective boot on doctor’s orders when he appeared in Croke Park this morning to launch Centra’s sponsorship of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship.

He will have a much clearer idea of his comeback timetable when he returns to see the specialist next week.

“I am back to him on Friday week so I’m not saying I am definitely gone,” Shefflin said.

“But more than likely it’s going to be very hard to see me back for the first round, to be truthful about it.”
