Disappointing league opener

Well in excess of seven thousand patrons flocked to Walsh Park in the city on Sunday last for the opening round of the Allianz Hurling League. Visitors Wexford, under the stewardship of former Deise boss Davy Fitzgerald, were on the "cusp of a wave" having annexed the Walsh Cup against Kilkenny the previous week. Having been on the wrong end of the scoreboard in the All-Ireland quarter final against Waterford at the redeveloped Parc Ui Chaoimh just six months or so ago, the Slaneysiders were looking to gain some revenge at this their first opportunity. Waterford on the other hand have been inactive in regular competition in recent weeks having also just come back from their holiday to the US and Mexico. That said there was also a huge chance for players to lay down a marker for

Cabinteely defeat ten man Blues

Waterford FC 1 Cabinteely 2

Waterford FC lost out to Cabinteely at the RSC on Friday night last in what was their third pre-season game. Following victories over Tramore and Wexford it was expected that the Blues would record their third win but the entire course of the game changed just after the half hour mark when Stanley Aborah was sent off by the match referee Sean Grant. The player in question was making his debut and the former Ajax, Notts County and Portsmouth player will remember this match for a long time to come. He was keen to impress and perhaps that fact played a part in his dismissal. It looked as if he had been fouled by a Cabinteely player but the free kick was awarded against him and he made his feelings known to

National Combined Events medals won

In Athlone on Saturday last the National Indoor Combined Events for all ages were held and two athletes from Waterford AC at both ends of the age scale did well.

Munster Juvenile Relay's

Ferrybank AC sent a number of teams to Nenagh on Sunday last for the Munster Juvenile Indoor Inter Club Relay Championships and one team won and another was third. The under 19 girls team won, the squad being Lorna Monaghan, Katie Murphy Amy Redmond and Zoe Kiely and the girls u 10 were third the

Up and Running

Depending on the elements, and we have had our share of bad days, the initial games in the Allianz National Hurling and Football Leagues will begin this coming weekend with games pencilled in for both Saturday and Sunday next. It is hoped that a full round will be completed however but, one never knows, what with the inclement weather last weekend putting a stop to most fixtures. Let's hope it will be a little kinder this coming Saturday and Sunday. For players involved in both the third level Fitzgibbon and Sigerson Cup, it is likely that some of those players will not be on intercounty duty as they already have college games pencilled in for midweek 24th/25th and another full round the following week. However as it stands the Waterford footballers will still face Wicklow in Aughrim on

Second pre-season win for new look Blues

Waterford FC 4 Wexford FC 1

Waterford FC made it two pre-season wins from two after a 4-1 win at home to Wexford FC on a cold Friday night at the RSC. The previous Tuesday evening they had defeated Tramore 1-0 in Graun Park. Manager Alan Reynolds selected a strong starting eleven for this game and it is worth nothing that four of the new signings were the goalscorers. David Webster, Izzy Akinade, Bastien Hery and Gavan Holohan were the players who found the back of the net and that fact augurs well for the season ahead.

Wexford FC had a great early chance as two former Blues players combined. Sean Hurley drove forward from left back and found the run of Owen Wall – but his strike couldn’t find the far corner and rolled past

Ardmore look to final place

Waterford Junior Hurling Champions Ardmore Naomh Deuglan travel to Pairc Tailteann in Navan on Sunday next for an All-Ireland junior Hurling semi-final against Donegal flagbearers Setanta. The representatives from the "Big Strand" have had a really successful and unbeaten year thus far and with a hugely experienced outfit must be at short odds to secure their final day outing. The Ulster winners came through their Provincial competition with a final win over Na Magha on a 2-17 to 3-11 and will relish the prospect of facing players like long time intercounty stalwarts Seamus and Declan Prendergast et al. For their part Ardmore have carried all before them throughout 2017 and following their domestic championship victory they took on the best in Munster winning 4-20 to 0-11 against Limerick outfit St Pat's in the quarter final.

Ferrybank 3 Inishvilla 0

Ferrybank's fine season continued at the Village Grounds on Sunday last when they proved too strong for West Cork outfit Inishvilla in Round 6 of the FAI Junior Cup. They will now join another Waterford League team, Dungarvan United in the last 16 of a competition which saw almost 800 clubs enter the competition. Dungarvan came from three goals behind to defeat Greencastle from Donegal the previous night in Kilrush Park. Unfortunately Carrick United bowed out of the competition in Dublin on Sunday. The 2008 champions lost 2-1 to Ayrefield in the capital.

Ferrybank created the best of the half chances that arrived during the opening 45 minutes with the visitors having a goal ruled out when referee John Ferncombe failed to play an advantage on ten minutes after

    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 …
