DANNY SUTCLIFFE has declared himself fit and be available for Dublin’s opening Leinster SHC clash with Laois or Carlow on June 2.
The in-form St Jude’s youngster who enjoyed an inspired league campaign in Dublin’s attack had set alarm bells ringing when he picked up a hand injury in a club game and was fitted with a cast, which he has since had removed.
Management feared he had suffered a broken bone but a subsequent scan revealed no serious damage. “There is no fracture anyway,” Sutcliffe explained. “That was the worst case scenario. I’ve been ticking over and kept running and keeping the fitness up.
“It’s just a case of getting a hurley back into my hand in the next few days,” he added.
