#STRONGERTOGETHER

Wexford FC @sfox_wyfc I will find out if they can be collected during this week's dates and get back to you!

It was a night to forget for Wexford FC in the Midlands on Saturday evening. A goal each from Dylan McGlade and Dean Zambra in the first half, and three second half goals were fair reward for a Longford Town team who barely broke sweat in this bottom half of the table clash.

It took just 3 minutes for the home side to take the lead. After good work down the right by former Wexford Youths player Aidan Friel the ball across eluded all but Dylan McGlade arriving at the back post, and he finished high in to the net.

McGlade was a thorn in the Wexford side for most of the evening, and not long after a quick one-two almost seen him in again, but this time the danger was cleared by Craig McCabe.

The best chance of the first half for Wexford came from last week's hero, Thomas Croke. Mark Slater's outswinging corner from the right was hooked back by Croke, but Kealan Dillon was on the Longford line to head away.

With just 5 minutes of the first half remaining, Longford doubled their lead. After Gavin Boyne was played through on goal, his shot was well saved by Graham Doyle, but the loose ball fell to Dean Zambra to finish.

What ever ideas Wexford had of maybe rescuing something from the game were extinguished less than ten minutes in to the second half. Wexford failed to clear a loose ball on the edge of the area and it eventually fell for Longford captain Kevin O'Connor and he drilled the ball low past Doyle.

Dean Zambra's second goal of the night came with 20 minutes remaining. He raced through on goal and his right-footed shot was too good to stop. The demolition job was complete with 18 minutes to play when the ball fell to Kealan Dillon on the edge of the area.
