📺Ian Ryan spoke to us after a helter-skelter night at Ferrycarrig Park! https://t.co/T39uU3N6Ri

After earning ourselves some breathing room at the top of the WNL, Wexford Youths look to progress to the EVOKE.ie Women’s FAI Cup Final, and win it, for the second year running.




The Youths have reached 5 finals from the past 7 years, and won 4. We face an Athlone Town Women’s side who have never beaten us, since founding in 2020. 




7 games have been played in all competitions between the sides, with the Youths winning all 7.




Last year, Athlone were knocked out in the Quarter-Finals of the Women’s FAI Cup against Wexford Youths, 3-1 at Ferrycarrig Park. 




After originally going 0-1 down with a goal from Emily Corbet, Ciara Rossiter grabbed a goal either side of half-time, and a late strike from Ellen Molloy sealed our victory on that day.




The two previous games this season in the WNL have finished 2-1 Wexford’s way - at Ferrycarrig in May, and away to Athlone in March, on the opening day of the season. 




Ellen Molloy has scored in the last 5 consecutive games versus Athlone, scoring 7 goals in that time.




A convincing 3-0 win over bottom place Treaty United helped the Youths achieve a 10 game unbeaten streak in the league. 




We have now won the last 7 consecutive league games, and 8 including the 3-1 quarter-final cup win over DLR Waves.




Athlone somewhat surprisingly rank mid-table in terms of most goals scored, in the second half of the league season. They have scored 18, compared to Wexford’s 28. 




Despite this, they do rank high in regards to fewest goals conceded in the last 12 games. Wexford have the best defense in this time, conceding 8 goals. 




Wexford Youths currently have the best home form in the league this season (12 games in total).




However, excluding Athlone’s 3 consecutive home losses at the start of the season, Athlone have the best record from the last 8 home league games.


They have won 7 of their last 8 home games, while Wexford are unbeaten, but drawn 2. 




Away from home, Wexford Youths are unbeaten in their last 5, and have won their last 4. 




A season-defining game awaits for both teams, as we aim to win the Women’s FAI Cup for the second year running, a feat we achieved back in 2018 & 2019. 




For Athlone, a chance for their first piece of silverware in many years to cap off an impressive season. And also a chance for redemption after last year’s 3-1 quarter-final loss against us. 




Shelbourne Women host Bohemian Women in the other semi-final on Saturday at 14:00. 




Kick off at the Athlone Town Stadium is this Saturday 24th September, 16:30.
