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



There are just three games remaining in the maiden season of Wexford FC. Having not played in a fortnight, the team will be glad to step out on to the turf again, but it will be a tough game, as Friday sees the visit of champions-elect Waterford FC.

Only for some wayward finishing last time out, Wexford FC could have taken something from the game away to UCD (See Damian Locke's post match interview here). In truth there were chances missed on both sides, but ultimately, Rob Manley's splendid finish 15 minutes from time was enough to give the hosts all 3 points.

Since that last outing, defenders Andrew O'Connor and Conor Dunne have left the club. The time off has also allowed Wexford to get a few bodies back to full fitness. Notably top goalscorer Thomas Croke and fellow midfielders Shane Dunne, Aaron O'Connor and Adam O'Rourke. Mark Slater will however miss the match as he serves a one game suspension for collecting 5 yellow cards.

Speaking ahead of the clash with our near neighbours, Captain Craig McCabe was upbeat about the tie. "There's absolutely no pressure on us. Waterford will come here expecting to win, as will the rest of the country expect them to. But we have some talented players here, and we will be looking to put it up to them. As always, there's a great buzz and togetherness around the changing room. We'll all have to work exceptionally hard to get something from the game, but there's no question in my mind that we can".


The statistics:

  • Waterford FC have played at Ferrycarrig Park twice already this season, and have won both games (EA Sports Cup, 0-5 and league, 0-1)
  • The 4 previous matches between the two sides this season have produced 11 goals - an average of 2.75 goals per game.
  • Waterford FC have won 2, drawn 2, and lost just once in their last 5 games in all competitions. The one loss being 3-0 at home to Shelbourne in the FAI Cup.
  • Thomas Croke is currently Wexford FC's top goal scorer with 6 league goals (all coming in his last 10 league appearances)
  • Ross Kenny is the club's top appearance maker, having started 24 of 25 league games this season (missed Cobh away in June due to suspension)
