Wexford FC U15 | Excellent win on the road for our U15s up at Marlay Park, Andrew Synoradzki on target for us today as it fini… https://t.co/3byoZNh7BN

Mixed weekend for our under age teams who were all back in League action finishing with two wins (U17 Boys and U17 Girls) and three defeats. On Saturday our U17 Boys travelled west to face Galway United looking for their first win since a round 2 victory over Limerick back in March, since then the lads have struggled for form with one draw and five defeats. Galway themselves were in need of three points, sitting a couple of places below Wexford in the table but despite a goalless first half it turned out to be a comfortable enough victory in the end for Billy Molloy's boys. James Dowling scored two goals in the space of seven minutes to give Wexford a commanding lead before Tyler Dunphy wrapped up the points five minutes before the end for a 3-0 win. Next up is Cobh Ramblers on Saturday afternoon at Ramstown, the Rams sitting in fourth place (Wexford are in 9th) but just four points separating the sides. Kick off in Gorey is at 2pm.

Our U19s had another frustrating afternoon in their League clash with Galway at Ferrycarrig (On Wednesday night they suffered a controversial AET time loss to Waterford in the Cup). Another cruel late penalty also, especially after having worked so hard to come back from a 1-0 deficit, Harry Rogers putting the visitors in front after 15 minutes. Caellum Travers Devlin levelled the game in the 80th minute with a fine free kick (his second goal of the week after scoring against Waterford) but was sent off minutes later after picking up a second yellow card for handling the ball in the penalty box. Joshua Kane Quinlivan dispatched the resulting penalty and United held onto the lead till the final whistle to take all three points. The lads take on bottom placed Cobh Ramblers on Sunday afternoon in St.Colman's Park and will be looking to close the gap to UCD in 8th with a win.

A day to forget on Sunday for our U17s who were heavily defeated by a relentless Bray Wanderers side in Dublin, the lads losing 7-1, a scoreline no-one saw coming especially after the first match between the sides ended in a goalless draw back in April at Ferrycarrig. Bray were 4-0 up at the break and added three more in the second half minute before Nikodem Czernik found the net for the only Wexford goal five minutes before the end. Wexford welcome Waterford to Ferrycarrig on Saturday afternoon looking to get back to winning ways and close the gap in the table between the sides (the Blues sit in 3rd place 5 points better off than Wexford in 4th). Kick off at Ferrycarrig is at midday.

After some heavy recent defeats, our U13 Boys were unfortunate not to get anything from their game with Bray in Bunclody on Sunday afternoon, the game finishing in a narrow 1-0 win for the Wicklow side. The lads are away to Waterford on Sunday.

Finally, the performance of the weekend surely goes to the U17 Girls who came from two goals down with just 20 minutes remaining to grab all three points with a stunning 4-2 victory over DLR Waves at Marlay Park on Sunday. The girls were unfortunate to go in at half time 1-0 down after an unfortunate own goal puts the hosts in front and the game looked over when DLR added a second shortly after the restart. However Seren Ward got Wexford back into the game in the 60th minute with a fine finish and Aime Dreelan levelled minutes later, heading in from a corner. Youths pressed forward looking for a winner and it duly came, Eimear Gabbett with a close range finish to put the girls in front for the first time in the game with five minutes remaining. Blessing Kingsley blasted in a fourth right on the final whistle to complete the incredible comeback. The girls play the same opponents on Saturday afternoon at Ferrycarrig hoping for another three points to help keep them on the heels of the top two. Kick off on Saturday is at 2pm.
