Wexford FC 📋 MATCH PREVIEW: Wexford travel to Longford on Saturday in high spirits after their win last time out 👉… https://t.co/NEe3hHjYHq

There were mixed fortunes for the club's underage teams this weekend. The under-17's picked up a point away to Cork City on Saturday, while the under-19's suffered defeat at the hands of Cobh Ramblers on Sunday.

The under-19's were behind early on, after conceding a penalty inside the opening 15 minutes, and went in to the half-time break trailing by 2. Just on the hour mark Cobh scored again, but Adam Rochford pulled one back 5 minutes later.

Cobh made sure of the points with 15 minutes to go when David Hurley scored a fourth for the home team.

The under-17's left Bishopstown with a point against Cork City. Goalkeeper Michael Walsh kept the visitors in it throughout the first half making a string of fine saves, and then Brandon Deady put Wexford ahead with just 22 minutes remaining on the clock.

All the action took place in added time at the end of the match though, when Cork City equalised and then immediately returned the the Wexford end of the pitch and won a penalty. Goalkeeper Walsh continued his fine form though, diving to his right to save.

After the game, we caught up with Michael Walsh to get his thoughts. "It was a very tough game and the conditions didn't help they were tough but the boys battled brilliantly." On his own performance, Walsh went on to say, "For the penalty I knew he was going to my right by his run up and got there with a strong right hand. A point is a great result against a good Cork team but we could of came away with 3 after conceding late".

Next up for the under-17's is a home tie against The Kerry League in Ferrycarrig Park next Saturday, while the under-19's travel to the Carlisle Grounds to take on Bray Wanderers on TUesday week (23rd May).
