Wexford FC @WexfordFC U19s are at Ferrycarrig Park this afternoon as we host @Cabinteely_FC Kick off at 2pm. https://t.co/HLSpB1Y05b

This weekend seen just two of our underage teams in action - the under 15s and the under 17s. The under 19 squad have a break before they play their last league match of the season against Waterford FC on Sunday 17th at Ferrycarrig Park.

The under 17s had a long trip to Mounthawk Park in Tralee to take on Kerry on Sunday afternoon at 2:00pm. After just 26 minutes, Thomas Burke gave the hosts the lead when he followed in on a Dillon Robinson shot to slot home. Just before the break, home goalkeeper Rob Osbourne made a fine save to keep the teams level. Kerry started much the brighter in the second half, and doubled their lead 12 minutes from time when the lively Robinson chased a high ball and slotted home.

Wexford FC U17: Colum Feeney, Jack Gallagher, Reece Murphy, Conor Signorelli, Cian Foley, Patrick Barron, Craig O'Reilly, Oscar Smith, Brandon Deady, Adham Masood, James Esser. Subs: Liam Berry, Ciaran Paige, Caellum Travers Devlin, Jason Daly.

At the same time, the under 15s were playing their first game in Ferrycarrig Park, against a very good Cork City side. The opening minutes were even, with Cork playing a pressing game. After quarter of an hour, Evan Farrell struck the cross bar, and then just 10 minutes later, striker Brody Murphy broke the deadlock with a sublime finish, lifting the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper.

City were unlucky to not get back in to the game just 5 minutes later, when after a misunderstanding in the Wexford defence, and goalkeeper David Murphy handling a back pass, City were awarded a free kick on the edge of the area. Left back Rob Walsh took the opportunity to shoot at goal, but he was unlucky to see his thunderous shot bounce back off of the upright. Right on the stroke of half time, Murphy got his second of the game, finishing in to the net from an acute angle. 

The second half started just as the first with Cork taking the game to their hosts. Unable to find the breakthrough, the game evened out, and seen chances for both sides. Just 13 minutes in to the second half, Murphy completed his hattrick. As the ball was laid off to him on the edge of the area, he struck it first time low in to the bottom corner.

Cork continued to try and find a way back in to the game, but the hosts held out for a clean sheet and another 3 points which keeps them at the top of the table.

Wexford FC U15: David Murphy, Sean O'Brien Murphy, Luke Greene (Cormac Doyle, 76), Dylan Whelan, Kyle Scallan, Darragh Levingston (Cian Kinlough, 76), Darragh McGuire (Graham O'Reilly, 46), Evan Farrell (Cormac Bruce, 78), Rian Fitzpatrick (Shane Gibson, 74), James Dowling (Darragh O'Donoghue, 54), Brody Murphy (Brian Byrne, 61). Not used: Cian Browne (GK).

After the game, manager Billy Molloy spoke to Wexford FC TV:
