Stephen Hiney will captain the Dublin senior hurlers again in 2010 after being reappointed by manager Anthony Daly.
The 26-year-old Ballyboden St Enda’s defender was an All-Star nomination last year and manager Daly said: “Stephen’s a good, solid fella and we need to build around him and get more leaders around him. He’s a natural leader. Having been captain of Clare (myself) for a good few years, it’s easier when everybody assumes responsibility for themselves. That’s important in any team – you need lots of guys rallying around to the cause.”
