Waterford stretch lead in front of large crowd

Waterford FC 2 Athlone Town 1

In August, 2016 Waterford United defeated Athlone Town 3-1 at the RSC in front of an attendance of 167 people. Fast forward to Friday night last at the same venue and with the club resurrected to Waterford FC and against the same opponents a crowd of 1,932 were present to watch the Blues win 2-1 and they have now moved three points clear at the top of the table. It has been a remarkable eight months for the club and to date the Blues have lost just one competitive match this season and that was on the opening day of the season away to Athlone. Mark O'Sullivan scored the two goals which won the game and with Davy McDaid missing due to suspension this was a good result

Minor footballers lose out in Ennis

It was a most frustrating evening for the Waterford Minor Footballers as they went to Limerick on Wednesday of last week in the opening game of their Provincial campaign. The final scoreline of 1-10 to 0-9 probably does not do justice to the huge effort put in by the young lads from the Deise.

The opening score of the game came for Waterford after seven minutes as Sean Whelan-Barrett pointed. The home side reacted immediately with points from midfielder Karl Moloney, Niall McAuliffe, Noel Callanan and Sean Ryan which saw them

0-4 to 0-1 ahead as the clock passed the twenty minute mark. Waterford were dealt a huge blow in the 23rd minute when Rathgormack dual player Billy Power was ordered off although there was an amount of frustration and anger on the part of the players

Waterford go one point clear at the summit

Waterford FC 2 - Cobh Ramblers 1

Waterford have gone a point clear at the top of the league table following this victory over Cobh Ramblers at the RSC on Friday night last. They were locked together with Ramblers prior to kick off so they have put a little day light between themselves and the Co Cork outfit. UCD defeated Athlone Town 4-1 on Saturday and they have moved into second place on 13 points, one behind the Blues. The largest crowd to watch a league game at the Kilbarry venue for many years saw the home side grind out a victory against a well organised side who are managed by Stephen Henderson. Next up for Waterford is another home game on Good Friday against Athlone Town. This is the first game in Series

Bright opening in huge defeat

The Waterford minor hurlers travelled to Cusack Park in Ennis on Wednesday in the opening round of the Munster Minor Hurling Championship. After an opening half in which the Deise youngsters kept pace with their highly vaunted opposition, there was a complete turnaround which saw dominance around the field by the home team who ran out comprehensive 1-24 to 0-9 winners. In a week when the Senior Hurlers lost their Allianz League challenge to Galway in Salthill, it was a disappointing few days.

Waterford, under the stewardship of James Lacey, travelled to the Banner County with a very inexperienced outfit. Just a handful of the team had previously seen Munster hurling while Clare could call on a number of players who had experience in last year's competition. That said, at this level one can see a huge

Two All Ireland Juvenile Indoor titles won

Saturday last was the final day of the Irish Life Health All Ireland Juvenile Indoor Championships in Athlone and two athletes from Waterford won titles. In the under 18 60 metres hurdles Shane Monagle Tramore won in a very fast time of 8.10 seconds a personal best for him while Shane Cawley Waterford easily won the under 16 Shot Putt with a fine throw of 14.28 metres. Others to collect medals were James Murphy Waterford a very close 2nd in u 18 triple jump with 12.73 metres and bronze medals went to Emily Nolan Ferrybank in the 200 metres u 19 with a personal best of 25.62, Lorna Monaghan also Ferrybank triple jump u 19 with 10.21 metres, Luke Brennan 800 m u 17 in 2.00.52 a personal best and not far behind the

Blues drop points but go back to the top

Waterford are back on top of the First Division once again following this outcome at The City Calling Stadium on Saturday night last.Considering the fact that the Blues missed a penalty after 33 minutes and then had Dave McDaid red cared early in the second period this was an acceptable result for the team. They now lead the table once again on goal difference from Cobh Ramblers who defeated UCD and Cobh are the visitors to the RSC this Friday and the largest crowd to watch a league game at the Kilbarry venue is expected to come and watch the first Munster Derby game of the season.

While Longford Town looked dangerous going forward, they didn't trouble the visitors goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin but Waterford did create several chances but a combination of poor

Disappointing end for Waterford

Having led Galway a merry dance for three quarters of the game in their Allianz National Hurling League quarter final at Pearse Stadium in Salthill, it was a huge disappointment for Waterford supporters as all the good work came to nought and the hosts ran out 2-22 to 2-19 winners to clinch their place in the semi-final of the competition. Two goals from Tom Devine midway through the second half seemed to have set up the Deise for victory but a whirlwind finish from Galway led by Joe Canning saw the Tribesmen home.

There was a fine crowd gathered in Galway for this clash of two teams with huge potential. While both have not shown anything like their best throughout the competition there was a feeling that a win would garner huge confidence for the challenges ahead. The

Following a trip on Saturday last to Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon the Waterford Senior Footballers returned pointless in their last game of the Alianz National League 2017. While there was no denying that opponents Leitrim were the better team on the day there were signs, particularly in the opening half and the closing minutes, that the Deise might just sneak a positive result. However all their efforts were scuppered as the Connaught side ran out 1-13 to 2-8 winners. The second goal for Waterford, coming at the death, gave a few anxious minutes to the winners but in truth they seemed to have the game under control at that stage. After a really positive start to the league campaign (two straight wins over London and Wicklow) the Waterford form has just unravelled and four losses will do little
