The final matchweek of the WNL approaches this Saturday, with a huge head to head title-decider taking place.

Wexford Youths must win over 1st place Shels in order to lift the WNL title for the 5th time in our history. 1 point separates the teams with one game to go.

A draw is not enough this week, as the Reds would be crowned champions - but only if Athlone also drop points at Bohemians. An Athlone win, plus a Youths v Shels draw, would set up a Shels v Athlone title play-off.

Aine Walsh’s 89th minute strike saw Youths draw 3-3 at Peamount in the standout game last week - a crucial point for the Youths, while also ending Peamount’s title chances.

We had a repeat result of the incredible game earlier on this season between the sides, at Ferrycarrig Park in May. The only difference was that in May, Peas brought the game even, while Youths did so last week. There was also the exact opposite score lines throughout.

The Youths now need three points to secure a first league title since 2018.


Shelbourne knew only a win would do as they hosted Sligo Rovers last week. A comfortable 2-0 win was their third consecutive win.

Although Shels currently lie 1 point ahead, the Youths may have the psychological edge. 3 of Shelbourne’s 5 losses this season have come in the last 8 games - against Sligo, Peamount and Athlone - two of which coming away from home.

The Youths on the other hand have lost just once in 13 games, winning 9 and drawing 3.

Not only is this game a title-decider between 1st v 2nd, it is also the best home side vs the best away side this season. The Youths have lost just from 13 at home - their only loss was actually 0-2 against Shels back in April.

Shels on the other hand have not drawn a game away from home - which makes Athlone’s chances of entering a playoff even slimmer.

Our last game against Shels in June went 0-1 our way, with Jess Lawler scoring late on in the second half.

We hope to see you down for what will surely be an unforgettable weekend in WNL history. We appreciate all your support this season C’mon the Youths!

Kick-off at Ferrycarrig is 17:20 Saturday 29th October 2022. The game will also be broadcasted live on TG4.
