Another busy weekend of action for all of our under age League of Ireland teams ending with two draws and two defeats. On Saturday afternoon, our U19s headed back up to Dublin to take on Cabinteely FC in good spirits after last weeks narrow loss to Shamrock Rovers at Tallaght Stadium. James Quinn's team has made a fine start to the season and again played well at the weekend but unfortunately left the capital with no points going down 2-0. Wexford were well on top before the home team went ahead in the 25th minute against the run of play with their first clear cut chance of the game. Wexford pushed hard for an equaliser, Kieran Murphy saw his cracking shot come back off the post and Josh Murphy had a great chance to level the game with a free header that went wide but the lads had very little luck on the day and a fair bit of bad luck, especially at the end with a scrappy second goal for the hosts in the 90th minute which richoched in off Colum Feeney for an own goal. Next up is UCD at Ferrycarrig Park on Sunday afternoon.

Billy Molloy's U17s had to come from a man down and a goal down in a tense tight game with Cabinteely at Ferrycarrig on Saturday. After three defeats in a row it was vital to get some points on the board to go along with the 6 from the opening two games. Things were looking good for the injury hit Wexford side when Dylan Casey headed in from a corner after 35 minutes and gave us a deserved 1-0 half time lead. Within 10 minutes of the restart the visitors were level, an unfortunate mix up at the back resulting in an easy tap in for the Cabinteely number nine. Seven minutes later and Wexford were down to 10, Shane Gibson dismissed for a push. Gibson himself was fouled twice prior to the push (Wexford ended up with the free kick after the red card was shown), a wild kick from the Cabo midfielder followed by a blatant shove into Gibsons chest. The Wexford defender pushed back and the referee reached to his pocket for the red card. Minutes later and another shocking decision against the home team, Luke Greene's shot coming back off the crossbar and bouncing down two yards past the goaline, no goal given. To make matters even worse, two minutes later the Dublin side were ahead from the penalty spot, another terrible call (Sean O'Brien with a clean tackle in the box winning the ball). Huge credit to this bunch of lads though who never gave up, the ten men grabbing a point in the 88th minute when Brody Murphy headed in from a corner. UCD are next up in Dublin.

Mark Doran's U15s continued their unbeaten start to the season on Sunday at Ferrycarrig, earning a point in a top of the table Group 4 clash with Bray Wanderers. The free scoring Wexford side (10 goals in their opening 2 games) found chances a little harder to come by against the Wicklow side and when they did, they were stopped by Irish international keeper Jack Ross who was in exceptional form on the day. Wexford really should have been comfortably ahead by half time but Ross made quality saves to deny the home team time and again, his save from Harry Curtis's header in particular was world class. The second half was a much tighter affair though and both sides cancelled each other out, the game ending 0-0. Wexford remain top of Group 4 on goal difference with a game in hand on 2nd placed Wanderers. The lads head to Dublin next week to take on Shamrock Rovers.

Finally, a tough away day for our new League of Ireland team this season, our U13s beaten 7-1 by Bray Wanderers. The lads are in a very tough group playing against teams with huge under age set ups (Cabinteeley, Bray/St Josephs Boys, Shamrock Rovers etc.) but they have great spirit and will learn loads this season and more importantly enjoy their first venture into League of Ireland football. Up next for them is a home game against Shamrock Rovers on Saturday at Ferrycarrig Park.

Wild second half for our U17s against Cabinteely at Ferrycarrig on Saturday.

 

U15s remain top of Group 4 after Sundays scoreless draw with Bray Wanderers at Ferrycarrig Park.
