Wexford FC 2⃣3⃣ days to go! A very soft day out on the training pitch, but the players are working harder than ever 💪🏼💪🏽💪🏿… https://t.co/SP9DQCg5bD

Promising young defender Darryl Walsh has joined Wexford FC for the rest of the season on loan from Waterford FC. The 19 year old Portlaw native has been at the RSC since 2015, starting his playing career there with the U17s after signing from local club Tramore AFC. Although one of the youngest players on the U17 panel at the time, he developed quickly. He was part of the Republic of Ireland squad that played in the 2017 European Under 17 Championships in Croatia (he also made his senior debut for Waterford FC the same year coming on as a sub vs Longford Town). In 2018 he captained the Irish Schools Team that won the Centenary Shield with a 3-1 victory over Scotland in Dublin. He has also captained the Waterford U19 side and scored twice in their 4-2 victory over Wexford FC U19s earlier this season at the RSC. Darryl (who can play centre back or left back) spoke to the clubs media team this week about his time at Waterford and hopes for the rest of the season at Ferrycarrig:

"It's been going really well there, training full time but I'm happy to get the opportunity to come to Wexford and develop further. Breener (David Breen, Wexford FC Assistant Manager) was Manager of the 19s two years ago so it's a great help already knowing how he likes to play and of course Sully (Brian O'Sullivan, Wexford FC Manager) is obviously from Tramore. I've played with a bunch of the lads before too like Shane (Griffin), Sean (Roche) and Darragh (O'Connor) so it makes settling in much easier. I'm just going to put the head down, work hard and play to the best of my ability."

Darryl is well aware of how tough the First Division is but is looking forward to the challenge:

"I've played against the likes of Cobh at senior level in the Munster Senior Cup this season and played against Bray in a pre season friendly already this year so I know it's a really good standard, there's some quality players in the Division and it can be physical but I'm ready to go. Training has gone well this week so hopefully we can push on and get three points against Galway tomorrow night."

Wexford FC take on Galway United in the SSE Airtricity League on Friday night at Ferrycarrig Park. Kick Off is 7:45pm.
