Wexford FC finished a long, tough season on Friday night with a 2-0 win over Athlone Town at Ferrycarrig Park. The scoreline suggests a comfortable win but it was never that, Athlone Town a very different beast to the one that lost here 7-0 a few months ago.

Wexford struggled to find any fluidity with their passing on the night and the scoreline and result flattered us a bit but a win is a win. This young team has been excellent in the past few games without getting anything for it so the three points to finish the season was just reward.

There was just one change from the side that performed so well against Galway United, Owen McCormack missing out with a thigh injury with Adham Masood starting. Athlone began the better, Oliie Hamzet and George Mukete causing problems (Mukete with one of the misses of the season when he headed over from five yards after the ball came crashing off the crossbar back to him). The home team didn't create much, yet were 2 up at the break, Aaron Dobbs chesting an Adham Masood free kick into the net on 23 minutes. Dean Walsh doubled our advantage right on half time, the Athlone keeper making a mess of a clearance and Walsh tucking it calmly into the corner for his first since joining on loan from Waterford.

Athlone continued to press in a second half without too much incident while Wexfords best effort fell to Liam McCartan who almost scored against his old club with a left foot screamer that narrowly missed the top corner. Two nil it finished, a satisfying result and just the 4th win in a season of transition both on and off the pitch. Roll on 2019.
