Meylers hoping 2018 brings a summer to savour

Imagine what next summer could bring for the Meyler family. John will be in charge of Cork's hurlers as they attempt to build on this year's Munster championship success and if next month's play-offs go to plan his son David will be on World Cup duty with the Republic of Ireland in Russia.

John's appointment as Cork manager is very interesting. It's also a shrewd move. There is no more experienced coach/manager around, stretching back to his first spell with Kerry which started in 1992.

He will be dealing with several Cork players who weren't even born in 1993, the year he presided over one of the biggest upsets in Munster championship history when Kerry beat Waterford in Walsh Park.

To say it was unexpected would be an understatement. Indeed, when the Kerry Supporters' Club tried to organise a coach to Waterford, there were only three takers.

Meyler has accumulated massive experience over the last quarter-century as senior manager in Kerry (two separate terms), his native Wexford, Carlow and underage Cork teams. He is the perfect fit for Cork seniors at a time of growing optimism on Leeside.
