Wexford Football League Premier Division

As we head into 2018, our men's first team sit fourth in the Wexford Football League Premier Division with thirteen points, a good return for a team playing in the top division for the first time. While manager Joe Newe and his Assistant Willie Maher are happy with how things have fared in the first half of the season, both feel that things could have been even better as points were definitely left behind in some of the games that were lost

 

A tough opening three games against the top three teams in the league saw defeats to North End (0-4), an unlucky defeat at home to Gorey Rangers (1-2) and a defeat away to Shamrock Rovers (2-5) saw the lads bottom of the table with the expected zero points. However, two wins in outside competition away to Croaasbeg in the LFA Junior Cup and a 3-2 win away to Bunclody in the FAI Junior Cup set the lads up nicely for their first league win which came on October 8th when they beat Bridge Rovers 2-0 away. A scoreless draw at home to Bunclody in the league lifted the lads out of the bottom three before a 2-1 defeat in Courtown Hibs put the brakes on their good run.

A 2-1 win in New Ross Celtic lifted them further up the table and while Gorey Celtic came to Ballyboy and spoiled the party by scoring the only goal of the game in the second half, the lads recovered well to record back to back wins at home to Courtown Hibs (1-0) and away to Moyne Rangers (1-0).

The bottom half of the Premier Division is always a tenous place to be and every point becomes more and more important as the season edges towards a conclusion and while the first half of the season can be looked back on with pride, there is still a long way to go and it is vital that they can keep picking off the wins that will give them the points to keep away from the bottom three

The good news is they are well capable of achieving these performances as in every game in the league so far, they have been very competitive, well organised and playing good football and if they keep that going in 2018, relegation issues will not be a concern and a good cup run is also on the cards as long as the draw is kind

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Our men's second team sit just a point above the relegation zone as we head into the new year and unless they can produce a run of results in the second half of the season, a return to Division Five is highly likely. Their only win came on September 24th when they beat Wexford Celtic 3-0 in Ballyboy and since then they have not enjoyed the best of luck as they have played almost all the teams in the top half of the table twice, suffering a few heavy defeats along the way. They have put in some good performances with an unlucky defeat away to Boolavogue possibly the most heartbreaking when the home side scored in the 96th minute to snatch all three points 4-3.

With several other relegation threatened sides to play in the second half of the season, all is not lost for the lads yet and a good consistent run of results would see them pull away from the bottom three and secure their place in the division for another year

Wexford Women's League Division Two A / Two B

By their own high standards, the Women's team are not enjoying as good a run as last season although are well in contention for the Division Two B title as we head into the new year. They are in the semi final of the Divisional Shield and are away to Division Two A leaders Forth Celtic on January 21st while they also have a couple of vital Division Two B matches coming up in the next few months, results that will quickly dictate if they will pick up any silverware this year.

They have only been defeated twice this season, away to St Leonards (2-4) and away to Bunclody (2-3) and both games were closer than the scoreline suggests and some comfort can be taken from the fact that both sides are Division Two A sides. The women would still be considered favourite's to lift the Two B title but will just need to stay focused and committed to ensure that they can continue on their rise up through the divisions

Best of luck to everyone involved in all our adult teams for the remainder of the season and Happy New Year
