Blues rock the champions in fiery Munster derby

Waterford FC came from behind to defeat the double champions Cork City at the RSC on Friday night last. An attendance of almost 4000 saw a dramatic match that produced many talking points both on and off the pitch.

Deep into stoppage time two Waterford players, Bastien Hery and Stanley Aborah plus Cork City players Stephen Beattie and Garry Buckley were sent off and the two managers, Alan Reynolds and John Caulfield were also sent packing by the referee Robert Rogers. The fact that John Caulfield, the City gaffer raced on to the pitch to try and get hold of the ball appeared to ignite the situation and when Bastien Hery pushed him all hell broke lose and the match officials found it difficult to control matters. It was a shame that the match

Champions make positive start

There was full round of JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship completed last weekend with most games going as expected. The April break from intercounty activity helped, although didn't solve, the fixture and training problems for clubs regards club v county.

However at least serious competition is now up and running and with another round of the new style championship due to take place next weekend it will give some momentum to the competition. However it also makes one reflect on what the situation would be if Waterford had progressed further in the Allianz National League. Now I Wonder?

SION LEAVE IT LATE

All that said, the competion for the Waterford News and Star Cup got underway on Saturday evening with title laden Mount Sion facing their close neighbours and city rivals Roanmore. Throughout the sixty odd minutes there

Classy Blues far too

powerful for Limerick

Waterford FC remain just one point behind the leaders Cork City following this brilliant win in the Markets Field on Friday night last. Every single player played his part in this latest victory and there was not a weak link in the team.Goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux, John Kavanagh, Dylan Barnett, Dave Webster and Kenny Browne were superb in defence. Kenny Browne was in fact making his 345th League of Ireland appearance and this was undoubtedly one of his best displays ever during his honour laden career. Midfielders Stanley Aborah, Bastien Hery, Paul Keegan and Gavan Holohan ruled their area of the pitch and Courtney Duffus scored another spectacular goal to bring his total to four for the month of March. John Martin and the substitutes Sander Puri, Derek Daly and Izzy Akinade also produced moments of

European Master's Double for Waterford's Superman Joe Gough.

The marvellous success story that is Joe Gough from West Waterford AC continues even as the age groups he competes in gets older and in Madrid last week he was in terrific form once again at the European Masters Indoor Championships in the over 65 age group. When the Championships concluded he was European Champion on the double in the 800 and 1500 metres. First up were the semi finals of the 800 metres on Wednesday and he won his semi final in an effortless time of 2 minutes 30 seconds, then on Thursday evening it was the final facing eight other competitors and again he was always in control to run out an easy winner in a fine time of 2 minutes 22.36 seconds, Giovanni Finelli Italy was second in 2.27.96 and

Curry nets the two points

The Waterford Senior Footballers travelled to McGovern Park in Ruislip last weekend in a bid to redress the present slump in results in the Allianz National League. Following a good draw in their opening outing against Wicklow , and despite some good performances, the team has been unable to accumulate any more points in the division. Travelling away to London and securing a win could prove a huge impetus to the Tom McGlinchy outfit and with one outstanding game to play against Leitrim there is every conceivable chance that if the results go in favour of the Deise they could end up in the top half of the league table. The Exiles for their part have had an improved league this year and Ciaran Dooley and his charges were highly fancied to claim the points.

Super Blues send Hoops home tumbling

Waterford FC made it five wins from seven after a 2-1 win at home to Shamrock Rovers to move second in the league table at the RSC on Friday night last. This was the first meeting of the two clubs in the Premier League since September 2007.

A double from Courtney Duffus either side of a superb Graham Burke strike made it another night to remember for the massive attendance who braved the lashing rain which fell all through the exciting contest. Having conceded a stoppage time winner to Dundalk in Oriel Park the previous week this was just the tonic the players needed. Paul Keegan, Garry Comerford, Bastien Hery and Courtney Duffus all came back into the starting eleven from the game in Co Louth seven days previously . Next up on the league scene

"It’s a fantastic occasion and it was great to see such a big crowd turn out on what was a miserable night. I hope that they’ve enjoyed it because it was end to end in the first half even when Rovers went down to ten men.

"They are a really good side and they have so many good players like Bolger, Burke and I could go on but I think people are starting to see that we have some really good players as well which is great to see. There are players playing with knocks, we are missing some key men but this is a really good group.

"It’s hard to play with ten men because we had to re-jig and Rovers were gambling a bit more then they would have with the eleven. I thought that it caused us problems and

Waterford fall on Leeside

It was a case of Division One 'A' survival for the winner of this Allianz National Hurling League playoff in Pairc Ui Rinn on Sunday last between Waterford and Cork. Following two really good performances in their recent wins over both Cork and Clare, the Waterford faithful travelled to Leeside in the knowledge that the mood in the camp would certainly have been extremely positive. Indeed there had been a huge turnaround in form in recent weeks for the Deise while Cork having won their opening tie against Kilkenny had suffered four losses on the bounce. It would appear that Waterford manager Derek McGrath was in the better position than his counterpart John Meyler as far as recent form was concerned.

Undoubtedly there is rarely little between both Waterford and Cork in competitive matches and this we expected

    As dry as the SaharaIt seems that whenever the weather in Ireland goes a little bit extreme, we are somehow incapable of dealing with it. It has already happened so far this year with the snow that totally disrupted the country for about a week and also later on when some areas in the country were flooded due to excess rain. Now it is happening again because we are having to deal with a level of sunshine that is virtually unheard of in the country. And a level of sunshine that is going on for a good numbe …
