Ladies football are holding their registration nights on Tuesday 18th and Friday 21st March from 7.30 to 9.00pm. This will be for all age groups from under 10 up to adults. Any queries please contact Bridie on 086 3579109. On the camogie front, a key piece of news is that under 10 training starts tonight, Tuesday 19th, at 6pm.


Our boys’ under 8s training enters its third week in the hall on Wednesday starting sharp at 7pm.  The coaches are putting into effect the approach promoted by Paudie  Butler and our own George O’Connor. The mixture of agility exercises and games is going down well and it’s great to see so many parents also staying around and contributing to the training sessions. Our under 10 and under 12 teams both played friendly matches against Fethard on Sunday in Piercestown to coincide with the senior double-header in Wexford Park. The under 12s will be spreading their wings next week as they travel to Cork for the hurling league encounter with the Rebels. On the way to Parc Ui Rinn our boys will take a detour to take on Castleyons in what should be an interesting encounter.


The U14 footballers are playing in the Féile on the 23rd in Hollymount and the boys have prepared well with a practice match against Blackwater on Sunday 16th. Hopefully this will stand to them at the Féile blitz.


Our minor hurlers got their season underway with a 4-15 to 2-8 win over Faythe Harriers on Sunday. While Joe O’Connor, Aaron Maddock, Jake Firman and Conor Firman stood out, it was great to see our full complement of subs get on during the game. Equally heartening was that the subs accounted for 3-2 of our total! Next up for the lads in the minor hurling championship is an away match at Glynn-Barntown on Sunday 30 March at 1130.


Finally, the Club is investing in our coaches' education by providing a number of learning sessions with well-known coaches from a range of different sporting backgrounds over the coming months. The first such session will be on Friday 21st March at 7pm when Damien Fitzhenry, widely regarded as Wexford's best-ever goalkeeper, will give a master-class on coaching the skills of goalkeeping. All our Club Coaches are encouraged to attend.
