Wexford FC RT @billy_molloy: 1st league game of @WexfordFC U17s season off due to weather, very disappointing especially with our next league fixture…


Wexford FC manager Damian Locke this week announced two major additions to his 2018 squad.


Returning for a second season on loan from Shamrock Rovers, Aaron Dobbs will once again be a key striker in the Wexford line-up.  Joining him for his third stint at Ferrycarrig Park is midfielder Chris Kenny, returning from a year spent at Sligo Rovers.


Speaking to the club media team at pre-season training, Locke was excited to welcome both players to his side for 2018:


“Chris Kenny is a really important addition to this squad – he’s a player I have admired for some time.  He’s exactly what we’ve been missing both on the pitch and inside the dressing room”.


Kenny will be well known to long-term visitors to Ferrycarrig Park, a member of the Wexford Youths squad in 2008-2010 as well as the title winning 2015 side.  “Hopper” Kenny made his league debut for the Youths in a 3-1 win over Dundalk at Ferrycarrig Park on 10th October 2008.


Fans will also be keen to see the return of Aaron Dobbs, coming for a second season on loan from Shamrock Rovers.  Locke too was excited to see what the young striker could do with a full pre-season under his belt:


“He’s a player who’s shown enormous potential and I believe he’ll be able to reach it, now that this squad can have a full pre-season together.  Now that he can hit the ground running, he is capable of anything”



Wexford are due to play their first pre-season friendly away to Waterford at the RSC on 19th January 2018.
