Wexford FC 🎥 Head over to our YouTube channel now, to see some highlights from the U19's game with Cobh Ramblers yesterday… https://t.co/YVLotFX9pV

 

After news broke yesterday evening regarding the retirement of goalkeeper Graham Doyle, the club was flooded with messages of support and thanks for Graham. 

First to pay tribute to the man who can only be described as a legend, was manager Damian Locke. "It is very difficult to put in words how much of a loss our “Super Keeper’ will be to the Club. A very difficult decision that was made by Graham was hard to accept but one we all have to respect. Many may not know that my first season involved with the club was in a role as a goalkeeper coach were I got to know Graham really well. It has been an absolute pleasure to have spent my best memories in football working with this guy who epitomised the word leader both on and off the pitch. Graham will not only be a loss to our club, dressing room and the league of Ireland, but football as a whole. Spending many years in a successful junior side, Freebooters of Kilkenny, earning Irish amateur recognition, progressing throughout his career to complete 151 consecutive games in the league of Ireland is an amazing achievement and something to be very proud of.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Graham and his family for their commitment and support shown to our club and congratulate Graham on a fantastic playing career. I wish you all the success in the future!"

 

As we all know, Graham first signed with Wexford Youths in 2012 under the management of current Galway United boss Shane Keegan, and Shane had this to say about Graham: "Happy retirement to a fantastic keeper, captain and most importantly man. His number was one of the first I dialled when I got the job and it was probably the best move I've made in management. In my 5 years at Wexford, Graham started every single league game, a remarkable achievement, and was particularly outstanding in our league winning season.

I doubt there is anybody who has been involved in the club in the last 6 years who has not had a chat with Graham and gone away feeling the better for it and he will rightly go down as a club hero. Enjoy the sofa, you deserve it!"

 

Both current and former players were also quick to show their appreciation for the legend via social media:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The love shown for Graham from the fans really showed how appreciated the man was, and how much he will be missed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Graham will be in attendance for Friday night's game against Athlone Town, and will be looking forward to seeing you all.
