Wexford FC Wexford FC U17 trials for 2019! Trials to take place late December & early January - please contact bmolloy@wexford… https://t.co/OUKEocsz7T

Just three matches remain for Wexford FC this season, the first of which sees the visit of Cobh Ramblers to Ferrycarrig Park for the third and final time in 2018 on Friday night. We have a poor record against the Rams, no win in the seven previous meetings (2 draws and 5 losses) but the games have usually been tight affairs and only once have Cobh beaten us by more than a single goal (a 2-0 away defeat in our final League game last year).

Stephen Hendersons men have struggled to reach the heights of their 2017 campaign when they were runners up in the First Division (and unfortunate the FAI scrapped the playoffs for promotion to the Premier Division that year). They ended up just eight points behind eventual champions Waterford FC finishing on 51 points in total after 28 games. This year after their 25 games played they sit in 8th position with 26 points. They've struggled for consistent performances of late and may have been distracted by an excellent cup run after reaching their first ever Cup Final, beating Dundalk in the semis (and ourselves in the 1st Round) and will now face Derry City on September 16th in the EA Sports Cup Final. Cobh have managed just the two points out of their last five League games, an excellent 2-2 draw with U.C.D followed by a goaless draw with the improving Athlone Town last week.

Still, thats one point more they've managed than us in our last five games, our point coming in a 0-0 with Drogheda United. In 2018 in our three meetings so far, the Rams have knocked us out of the EA Cup (an 8-7 penalty shootout win after a scoreless 120 minutes), Aaron Dobbs got our equalizer against them in their last visit to Ferrycarrig back in April while Dean Kelly was our scorer in our last meeting (a 2-1 defeat at St.Colmans Park in June). Dean Kelly is of course no longer with the club having moved to Damian Lockes Newbridge Town FC this week along with midfielder Mikey Byrne.

Theres been huge changes of course at the club this season but theres an opportunity to finish the season on a positive note, our very first Wexford FC Supporters Trust AGM takes place this week and with three games remaining, Wexford can still improve on our points total from the 2017 season when we finished with 19 points (this year we currently have 13 with a trip to Galway and a home tie against Athlone to come after tomorrow nights game).

Our coaching team of Seanie O'Shea, James Quinn and Billy Molloy almost have a full squad to choose from although Ryan Nolan will definitely miss tomorrows game with a groin injury while Aaron Dobbs is a doubt with a hamstring problem (Dobbs scoring the last time out against Shelbourne but having to come off after 60 mins). 

Kick off tomorrow at Ferrycarrig Park is at 8pm.
