Hurling star Lee Chin will miss Wexford Youths' crucial play-off clash to attend GAA All-Star Awards

The star scored his first goal for the club in the first leg against Drogheda.

HURLING STAR LEE Chin has said he will not be involved in Wexford Youths’ promotion/relegation League of Ireland play-off second leg on Friday.

Chin scored as Shane Keegan’s side won 2-0 in the first leg against Drogheda United at Ferrycarrig Park, but the Wexford inter-county hurler is unavailable for the return clash.

The multi-talented star wrote on Twitter that he would “sign out,” having joined the club on a short-term deal back in September.

And speaking to The Irish Independent, Chin confirmed that he would miss the big game. Instead, he will attend the GAA All-Star Awards in Dublin on Friday evening, with the player shortlisted for a gong.

Chin, however, believes his absence will not be too keenly felt as his side hold a two-goal lead going into the second leg in Drogheda.

They are a great bunch of lads. It was nice to be a part of it, to join and fight for them. I wouldn’t look at myself as a huge value to the club. In my opinion, if I’m not there on Friday night there are three or four other lads who could step in off the bench and do a better job.

“The 2-0 cushion maybe makes it a little easier for me to not be there on Friday night.”
