Former Wexford football PJ Banville sent out a curious tweet on Wednesday evening. Banville said that Kevin Doyle, the former Ireland international, was taking up an advisory role with the Wexford U20 footballers.
Banville, who called time on his inter-county career last year, is a selector with the Wexford underage side.

Speaking on Off The Ball's Keith Andrews Show, Doyle explained how his involvement with the team came about.
A friend of mine is involved, Eric Bradley, that I would have played soccer and football with growing up.
He was a former inter-county footballer and he's involved with the U20s and he rang a few weeks ago wondering if I'd go in and speak with the lads and help out a few nights; just bring a bit of publicity and something else to it.
I haven't been watching a whole lot of Gaelic football over the years, since I stopped playing. It'll be fun, it'll be fun to see something a bit different and help in whatever way I can.
I don't know what I'm going to add to the mix but at least we're talking about it.
Doyle returned to Ireland in November after retiring from football due to concussions issues. He had been playing with Colorado Rapids in the US when the problems developed.
