Footballers suffer defeat to Carlow

After such a promising start to the Allianz National Football League where Waterford defeated both London and Wicklow in their opening games, it seems that inconsistency has again reared it's head. On Saturday last at Cullen Park the home side, Carlow, came through in comprehensive fashion on a 2-10 to 0-7 scoreline to send the Deise to a third defeat in a row and ultimately rule them out of any hope of promotion. However, before the game there was a certain degree of confidence in the Waterford camp. Both the defeats to table toppers Wexford and Westmeath were close run affairs and showed that the lads could certainly hold their own in the division. With a little luck they were well capable of taking the points home from the South Leinster venue.

Before the throw-in manager Tom

Reds and Blues draw in Tolka Park

Waterford FC had to travel to Dublin for the second week in succession on Friday last and they had to settle for a point. The previous week they had defeated UCD at the Belfield Bowl. Sander Puri had to sit out this game due to injury and he was replaced by Derek Daly. That was the only change to the starting eleven from the previous contest. Overall a share of the points was a fair outcome although if the excellent Davy McDaid had made it 3-1 when the score stood at 2-1 the three points on offer could have been taken from the Tolka Park. His shot on the run struck the outside of the post.

Shelbourne shocked the Blues with a goal inside the opening nine minutes when Dayle Rooney whipped in a free

Cork overcome flat Deise

Round Four of the Allianz National Hurling League was a do-or-die as far as Cork Senior Hurlers were concerned on Sunday last. With just a brace of points from their opening three games, another defeat to Waterford would see them in the dreaded relegation zone. For the home side who had secured four points it was a case of certain qualification for the knockout stages if they could garner a win. While there was a good crowd of over six and a half thousand it appeared that the majority, as one would expect, were for the home side. On recent league form the oddsmakers were very much in favour of a facile home win with a spread of over five points. That said it would also be unwise to ever rule out a Cork team as they

UCD 0 - Waterford FC 2

This was the second win in a row for the new look side and it was also the second week in succession that they kept a clean sheet. The goals were scored by Patrick McClean and the rising star Tom Smith, The team showed two changes from the side which had defeated Cabinteely three nil the previous Friday. Shane O'Connor and Garry Comerford came in for Jake Evans and the injured Mark O'Sullivan. Anthony McAlavey forced the first corner kick on two minutes that nearly yielded the breakthrough goal as Shane O’Connor’s delivery from the right broke to Patrick McClean at the near post but his cracking right-footed strike

Mahony steers Waterford home

Nine years on from their last competitive win at Headquarters the Waterford Senior Hurlers proved too strong for a resilient Dublin on Saturday night last in the Allianz National League. This Deise outfit, although many just out of under 21 grade, were well worth their five point victory and more important the two league points which at the end of the day could well prove the difference between qualifying or being an "also ran". As part of a double header, Dublin and Mayo contested the second game in the Football League, there was a reasonable attendance but not quite the thirty five thousand that were there when the football started. Shows the power of the "big ball" game in the Capital and what success does for a county. That said no one could fault the Dublin hurlers

Super Blues stun Cabinteely

Waterford FC 3 - Cabinteely 0

The new look Waterford FC team got their campaign up and running in front of almost 1, 500 fans at the RSC on Friday night last. The previous week they had lost one nil away to Athlone Town and the management team of Alan Reynolds and Pat Fenlon made three changes to the starting eleven. Dave Mulcahy, Davy McDaid and Anthony McAlavey came in and Garry Comerford, Dean O'Halloran and Shane O'Connor took their place on the `subs bench. Dave Mulcahy played in the heart of the defence with Patrick McClean switching to left-full back. McAlavey played in midfield and he scored a truly wonderful goal. Davy McDaid, making his full debut also proved his worth and he scored two goals on a night that the largest attendance for many years loved.
