“Deadly Daly” keeps Waterford on top

Waterford have moved two points clear at the top of the table following this victory at the RSC on Friday night last.

Derek Daly was the goalscoring hero for the second week running. He also netted the winner against Wexford the previous week. This was the third consecutive one nil win for the Blues. UCD were in second place, one point behind Waterford prior to last weekend but they lost at home to Cobh Ramblers and as a result the Co Cork club have now taken over second position and on Saturday next Waterford will travel to Cobh for what will be a top of the table clash in every sense of the word. Cobh Ramblers are managed by Stephen Henderson who is a former Waterford manager and that fact will add spice to the encounter.

Deise face rebels in opener

The opening round of the Munster Senior Football Championship will take place on Saturday next at 7pm when Cork are the visitors to Fraher Field Dungarvan. The home side who began their 2017 league campaign on such a high note, seemed to fall away after that and manager Tom McGlinchy and his backroom team will be hoping that they re-energise the lads for what looks a formidable challenge. Cork who themselves have been going through some lean years, had a disappointing run in the Munster and All-Irelan series of 2016. Beaten by a Tipperary side, 3-15 to 2-16, who continue to push an upward curve, the Leesiders came through two rounds of the qualifier system accounting for both Limerick and Longford.

However their challenge petered out in Round Four when they suffered defeat to Donegal on a

Blues stay top following a hard battle in Wexford

Waterford remain on top of the league table following this hard earned win in Wexford on Friday night. This was not a pretty game by any stretch of the imagination but it's results like this that wins league titles and hopefully that will be the case come the end of the current campaign. The one downside was the fact that ace goalscorer Mark O'Sullivan did not appear for the second half after picking up a nasty looking ankle injury just before halftime and eveyone will be hoping he will be fit to line out against Longford Town at the RSC this Friday. UCD remain just one point behind Waterford after they defeated Longford away on Saturday and Cobh Ramblers are just a further point adrift following their win against Cabinteely on Friday.

Out of Competition

The Waterford Minor hurling team travelled to Gaelic Park in LImerick on Thursday last in a "last chance saloon" effort to remain in the Munster Championship. Following two heavy defeats to hugely fancied Cork and Clare, there was every reason to expect that Limerick, who have contested the last four finals and went down narrowly to Tipperary in their opening game, would again prove a formidable task. The Ennis Road venue has been a forboding place for Waterford minor teams over the last few years with precious little reward for some huge endeavour.

Travelling to Shannonside on the back of those two opening defeats was going to make the job that much harder. The Deise manager James Lacey and his team were dealt a huge blow before the game as full back, Ardmore clubman, James Flavin had to withdraw

Waterford FC 1  Shelbourne  0

Following two draws in the league, Waterford returned to winning ways in front of almost 1,500 fans at the RSC on Friday night last.

Waterford will play Wexford this Friday in Ferrycarrig Park and it will be a case of first V bottom because the South East neighbours are rock bottom with a total of four points. 

Dayle Rooney created the first chance of the game inside the opening minute of the tie when he tried his luck with a speculative lob from 25-yards but his effort

Minor hurlers lose on Leeside

The Waterford Minor Hurling team travelled to Cork on Wednesday of last week in their second outing of the Munster Champions but as in their opening contest they had to give way, this time to the Rebel county on a 1-24 to 0-8 scoreline. This was a thoroughly deserved victory for the hosts as the final score suggests. The reports from Cork suggested that, this year, they had a minor outfit that was well above what had been seen in recent years. Indeed some had even hinted that the present crop of minor talent was well capable of making a huge impact on the competition at both Provincial and National level.

The opening minutes saw Cork race into an early lead through, particularly, the efforts of corner forward Brian Turnbull. The Douglas youngster bagged himself five points

Waterford to Tramore run has huge entry

Almost 400 competed in the 48 th Annual Bluewall Paddy Flanagan Memorial Road Race from Waterford to Tramore on Saturday last in cold blustery conditions.

She was wife of the man whom the race remembers each year Paddy Flanagan. Leading from the start Philip Harty West Waterford was the emphatic winner in a time of 40 minutes 10 seconds, Conor McCauley Leevale Cork was second in 41.08 and Mark McKenna Waterford was third in 42.39.
