Saturday could be a special occasion for Paul Morris, with the Ferns St. Aidan's clubman set to make his one-hundredth appearance for the Wexford Senior hurlers.

The talented attacker hit the 99 mark when he came off the bench and went on to earn his second Walsh Cup medal in Portlaoise on Saturday.

He made his debut almost ten years ago, in the National League against Carlow on March 21, 2010, and he has scored an impressive 13-223 over the years.

Morris will continue the theme of a month of milestones for Wexford hurlers, as three of his colleagues have hit the half-century of appearances in recent weeks.

First up was Jack O'Connor, whose 50th game was the Walsh Cup semi-final versus Kilkenny in Callan when he captained the team and scored 0-7.

And he was joined on that figure in Portlaoise last Saturday by the unrelated Foleys, with Kevin giving his customary assured performance in a sweeping role, while Pádraig really left his mark on proceedings with a monster point to seal victory in the dying stages.

If, as expected, Paul Morris features again versus Laois, he will become the second centurion on the current squad, joining Harry Kehoe who has 124 appearances.
