The captain of the Kilkenny under-20 hurling team for the season 2019 has been appointed.

Defender Evan Shefflin, who won senior and under-21 championships with Ballyhale Shamrocks in 2018, has been nominated for the role by his club.

Evan is son of Shamrocks trainer, Tommy Shefflin, and is nephew of ten times senior All-Ireland medal winner, Henry Shefflin.

Former Kilkenny great, D.J. Carey is manager of the under-20 squad.

Earlier this week Shamrocks nominated T.J. Reid as captain of the Kilkenny senior team. The senior vice-captain will be Colin Fennelly.
