Wexford FC Wexford FC host AFC Wimbledon in a friendly at Ferrycarrig Park this Saturday at 2.00pm! Full story:… https://t.co/481RbGqoU1

A frustrating weekend for our Under Age teams ending in three defeats and one victory but that doesn't really tell the full story. Our U19s (pictured above) faced table toppers Shamrock Rovers at Tallaght Stadium yesterday, Rovers with a comprehensive home victory in this fixture last year. It was a completely different affair this time around, the home team fortunate to go in ahead after scoring right on the half time whistle. Within minutes of the restart they were 2-0 up but Wexford showed great fight and resilience and ended the game the better side, Jamie Maher striking the post before Josh Murphy slotted home from the penalty spot with five minutes to go to set up a grandstand finish. Time was against the lads though and the home team hung on for the three points. James Quinn's team are away to Cabinteely FC on Saturday.

Billy Molloy's U17s faced a Shamrock Rovers side that are already running away with the League at Ferrycarrig Park on Saturday. It was a tough ask for a side who might be running a little low on confidence after two defeats in a row, but there was plenty to be positive about in a very good first half performance. Rovers were a little fortunate to go ahead in the 45th minute before scoring from a disputed penalty on the hour mark which made an uphill task a lot harder. The visitors remain unbeaten in 5 with a final scoreline of 2-0, our lads will take on a Cabinteely side at Ferrycarrig Park this weekend who are still looking for their first win.

Mark Doran's U15s are absolutely flying at the minute (and top of Group 4), following up their opening day win over UCD with a brilliant 4-2 victory over Waterford FC at the RSC yesterday. Harry Curtis scored his fourth and fifth goals of the season (after his hat-trick at Ferrycarrig last week) while Sam Norval and Darby Purcell netted for the first time this season in a comfortable win over our South East rivals. The victory was made all the more impressive with just 13 fully fit players to choose from on the day. Up next is a very good Bray Wanderers side who will visit Ferrycarrig Park on Sunday.

David Maher's team were very unfortunate, going down 2-1 to Waterford FC at Ferrycarrig on Saturday afternoon. Charlie Murray had us in front and in control midway through the first half as the lads looked to bounce back from last weeks defeat in Dublin to UCD. Two second half goals in the space of five minutes for Waterford though turned the game, Wexford with no luck on the day missing from the penalty spot also. The lads are away to Bray on Saturday.

A moments silence for John Murphy who passed away Saturday (brother of Wexford FC GK Coach Pip Murphy) before the U19s game at Tallaght Stadium.
