Under 21 hurlers must maintain focus

The Sean Power managed Waterford under 21 hurling team will face Galway in a Semple Stadium showdown on Saturday next. There is huge expectation in both camps with the tribesmen going for their 11th title while the Deise will be hoping to add to their single 1992 title.

The Munster champions have been awesome in their outings thus far with a hugely significant second half display against Tipperary taking the Provincial crown. In the All-Ireland semi-final against Antrim the goalscoring threat of players like Patrick Curran and Stephen Bennett saw Waterford cruise to a 5-25 to 1-8 win and with it a place in the All-Ireland final. There is no doubt but Waterford are a hugely talented outfit with many of the marquee players also part of the senior setup.

The majority of the Galway team may

Drogheda jinx hit Blues for 4th time

Waterford United 1 - Drogheda United 3

Promotion chasing Drogheda United defeated Waterford United for the 4th time this season when they came out on top at the RSC on Friday night last. Due to suspension, illness and injuries the Waterford manager Roddy Collins had to field a makeshift team but despite that fact the Blues gave as good as they got and for periods of time they outplayed the visitors and there is no doubt that the hosts deserved something from this game. Collins and the home supporters left the Kilbarry venue scratching their heads wondering how the Co Louth team actually took three points from the contest. In many ways the 90 minutes summed up what has been happening from the outset of the season. What ever could go wrong has gone wrong

Hurling Championship pickup

Another full round of the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship was completed at the weekend. Reigning champions Ballygunner once again laid down a marker that they will be hard to wrest away from the Waterford News and Star Cup with a convincing win over recently promoted Portlaw in Kill, the scoreboard showing 3-18 to 1-12 in favour of the Gunners. The winners led 2-10 to 0-6 at the break as they put 2-3 to 0-2 on the board in a six minute spell midway through the opening half. The goal for the Tannerytown coming late in the game from under 21 star DJ Foran but this was little too late as far as the final result was concerned. Indeed the oddsmakers have had the Ballygunner outfit at the top of the betting lists since the beginning

Thomas Barr in Diamond League in Zurich

After his exploits in the Olympic Games in Rio a few weeks back Thomas Barr is back on the track this Thursday in Zurich in Switzerland at the Diamond League meeting, a meeting that sees 14 of those that won Olympic titles in Rio competing and the race in which Thomas competes the 400 metres hurdles is probably the most competitive of the fixture and it could in fact be called another Olympic final. He faces the Olympic Champion Klement from the USA,Culson from Puerto Rico who was sadly disqualified in that final with the electronic start equipment picking out his brake-it was not visible to the naked eye- from Kenya the reigning World Champion Bett is there also - he fell in Rio in his heat Thomas has had a busy time meeting

Waterford United 2 - Bray Wanderers 1

With the First Division team not playing last weekend all of the attention fell on Waterford United's Elite Under 17 League team when they played Bray Wanderers at the RSC on Saturday last. They had won their previous two games against Cabinteely and Limerick and as a result they had moved into the top four and the qualifying positions. Two fine goals kept their run going and it would appear that this team is really getting into the groove right now. This was a game they dominated throughout and in truth the result was never in any real doubt. Waterford could have taken the lead in the very first minute when Adam Conway picked out Sean Roche from the right but the usually reliable Blues striker lost his composure and he shot wide from

Young guns fire to All Ireland final

On Saturday afternoon a highly fancied Waterford under 21 hurling team put themselves in line to win an All-Ireland title as they hammered Antrim on a

5-25 to 1-8 scoreline in rainsoaked Semple Stadium Thurles. Having come through a Munster campaign which saw the Deise with comprehensive victories over both Clare (3-23 to 1-11) and Tipperary (2-19 to 0-15) the Munster kingpins were fully expected to justify their position as raging hot favourites. Antrim under manager Ollie Bellew had faced much weaker oppostion in their previous games against Down (2-21 to 1-18) and Derry (0-16 to 1-9) and their fans among an attendance of 4125 came with more hope than confidence. Credit the Glensmen they are keeping the game alive in the Northeast of the country but on Saturday's showing there is a huge gulf

Agonising fourth place for Thomas Barr in Olympic final.

For four days last week all Waterford eyes were centred on the Olympic Stadium in Rio as Thomas Barr Graiguearrida Dunmore East a member of Ferrybank AC lined out for Ireland in the 400 metres Hurdles. First up were the heats on Monday and all were wondering what shape he was in after his very much curtailed season due to a recurring hip injury. Unlike 2015 when he won the World University title and competed in several Diamond league meetings against the Worlds best he had just three races this season, the Irish Championship in June which he retained his title in 50.28, the heat of the European Championships again in late June finishing second in 50.17 and the semi final of the same competition where he finished third in 50.09.

Blues too strong for Reds

Waterford United 2 - Shelbourne 1

Owen Wall scored the winning goal as Waterford United defeated Shelbourne for the second time this season following this game at the RSC on Friday night.

This was Wall's first senior goal for the club and the 16 year-old then went on to score a hat-trick for the Under 17 team in Limerick on Sunday so he had a weekends to remember. The second Waterford goal on Friday was scored by the oldest player on the field, Philly Gorman , his 101st career league goal.

Shelbourne created the first chance of the game on four minutes when Cian Kavanagh picked up possession of the ball on the edge of the penalty area but his right-footed effort was just wide of Matthew Sheehan's left-hand upright.

It was Kavanagh that went close again to putting the

Cats claim final appearance

Following a thrilling draw in Croke Park on Sunday week, some thirty odd thousand patrons returned for the replay in Semple Stadium on Saturday last for part two of the Waterford versus Kilkenny All Ireland semi-final.

No doubt but the expectation within both camps was high and that very little would seperate the teams with the Cats however, favoured by many of the pundits and indeed the oddsmakers. That said Derek McGrath and his Waterford charges were travelling in the full knowledge that Kilkenny held no fears, even allowing for their superb record in the competition over the past decade and a half. Semple Stadium in Thurles has always been called the home of hurling and I suppose few could argue. As we made our way to the
