Dublin hurling manager Ger Cunningham has cut seven players from his Dublin Senior hurling panel for 2017.
It’s been reported in the Herald that former captains Johnny McCaffrey and Peter Kelly have been dropped from the squad for the upcoming season.
Paul Ryan, Daire Plunkett, Niall Corcoran and Glenn Whelan have also been excluded from the panel, while Shane Durkin has apparently also opted out of the 2017 plans.
St. Jude’s ace Danny Suttcliffe had already removed himself from Cunningham’s plans as he intends to travel.
Meanwhile ten new names have been brought into the squad list.
Under 21 stars Jonathan Treacy, Eoghan Conroy and Jake Malone have been included in the extended panel, as have Donal Burke, Cian O’Sullivan, Paddy Smyth, Alex Quinn, Canice Maher, Fergal Whitely and Ronan Walsh.
