Blues hold the cup champions

Waterford FC 0 Cork City 0

Waterford FC played their second pre-season game at the RSC on Saturday last and they more than held their own against FAI Cup champions Cork City. The previous Wednesday the new look side had defeated Tramore 4-0 in Graun Park. A large crowd turned up to watch Saturday's game and they were impressed by what they saw. Many of the new signings stepped up to the plate and all and all it would appear that the squad is coming together very nicely and with further new faces due in soon a positive season would appear to be in store for spectators and indeed the players.

Waterford left their intentions known from the opening whistle with Kenny McEvoy cutting in from the right on four minutes but he drilled his effort into the

Clare just get over the line

In keeping with recent games Waterford Senior Hurling manager Derek McGrath and his management team put out a very inexperienced side to face Clare in the Munster League on Sunday last in Fraher Field. No doubt the De La Salle clubman is giving all those players on the panel and the extended panel an opportunity to copperfasten a place in the squad as we face the Allianz National League in a few weeks time. Nontheless this again was an opportunity for a young Waterford fifteen against a Clare squad who carried a number of their intercounty stars in tow.There was less than a thousand people in Dungarvan for this game on a cold but nice enough day for the middle of Winter. The banner led by 0-5 to 0-2 after the opening ten minutes thanks

Footballers edged out

In a blustery Leamybrien on Sunday last the Waterford Senior Footballers were on the wrong end of a 0-9 to 0-7 scoreline against Limerick in the McGrath Cup. There was very litle to choose between the sides throughout a disappointing opening half and the teams went to the break level at 0-3 apiece. Waterford forwards Podge Hurney and freetaker Paul Whyte keeping the scoreboard moving along for the home side. The opening minute of the second half saw Waterford take the lead with a point from Joey Veale but Limerick wing forward Danny Neville, now playing in a more central role tied the game and then edged them ahead. Indeed the Ballysteen clubman bagged five points throughout the game. The visitors continued to create the chances and with Neville in scoring form they crept two ahead. Limerick were

Kate Veale returns with a victory in her favourite sport

The Indoor season began last week end with a Munster Championship fixture in Nenagh on Saturday and Sunday and there were a number of Waterford successes. Back in action after an absence of several years in the sport of race walking in which she made a name for herself on the World stage under age was Kate Veale West Waterford AC. She competed in the senior 3000 metres walk and made a winning return in a time of 15 minutes 9 seconds which was well outside her best but still quite a respectable effort for her comeback race. In the past year or so she had been running in road races so she had kept reasonably fit. For Waterford AC it was a very successful week end with their athletes winning

Waterford make good start but fade

The opening game of the 2107 season saw the Waterford Senior Hurlers face Limerick in the rearranged venue of Fraher Field on Sunday last. It is difficult to assess teams so early in the year and with the visitors now under the management of John Kiely there was every reason to believe that the Shannonsiders would be well up to making a positive impression for their newly appointed bainisteoir. Waterford under manager Derek McGrath had listed just one of the championship side from 2016 and he and his backroom team were opening the door for players to lay down a marker for the new season.

Waterfortd were quickly to the pace of the game and could conceivably have had one "in the net" after just ninety seconds as Roanmore clubman Billy Nolan saw his penalty saved
