Championship down to four

Last weekend saw the completion of the quarter finals of the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship with no real surprises and all fancied teams coming through the "minefield". On Saturday afternoon in Walsh Park it was the turn of reigning champions Ballygunner, on course for four in a row, to face their long time city rivals and title laden Mount Sion. Both managers, Gunners Feargal Hartley and Nicholas Mackey of Mount Sion would have been well aware that there was a rich tradition of winning in both camps. They would also have been very aware that while the champions have been irresistable throughout the group stages, one can never write off Mount Sion in knockout competition.

There was a sizable crowd in the Keane's Road venue for this encounter with the weather making it a good

Waterford record second win of the week

Having beaten Wexford two nil the previous Teusday, the Waterford Under 15 side defeated Kerry at a rain soaked RSC on Saturday afternoon and they remain very much on track to cement a play-off position in what is the first season of this competition. Francis Rockett's outfit have lots of exciting players and they were determined to beat their opponents because the team from the Kingdom came out on top in Mount Hawk Park some weeks ago.

Waterford took the lead with the first attack of the game after 5 minutes. Abel Alabi took out the Kerry defence with a peach of a ball and Robert Bulmer displayed wonderful composure and he found the far corner of the net from just inside the left side of the penalty area. The Kerry side equalised two minutes

No group shocks in final round

The concluding round of the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship was completed last weekend. While there were no real shocks the final eight (quarter finals) will make for some interesting ties. Champions Ballygunner will face long time rivals Mount Sion. The Monastery outfit have so often been a nemesis for the Gunners and will relish the opportunity of trying to put one over their great rivals.

However at this stage of the campaign it is easy to see why most pundits and indeed patrons are looking at Ballygunner retaining the Waterford News and Star Cup. On Sunday last it was the Gunners who came through rather comfortably against De La Salle on a 0-23 to 0-15 scoreline. Needless to say both Ballygunner and De La Salle had already secured their place in the last

Ten years of hurt and humiliation comes to an end

Waterford FC 1 Longford Town 0

Thousands of Waterford FC supporters flocked to the RSC on Friday night last to see the captain Kenny Browne lift the First Division cup high into the air and to see the players presented with their league medals.

Young and old fans cheered 15 minutes after the game when the official presentation was made and it was lovely to see the long serving Kit Manager Michael Walsh being fully recognised for his unbroken 52 years of service to the club as he also was given the honour of lifting the cup on the podium. The league title and promotion had been achieved the previous week when the Blues defeated Wexford FC and second placed Cobh Ramblers had been surprisingly beaten by Cabinteely. Following

Gunner lead the chase

Round Four of the JJ Kavanagh Senior Hurling Championship was completed last weekend and the one" big" question on lips of many of those attending in Walsh Park was "who will stop Ballygunner retaining the Waterford News and Star Cup"? The team from Knockboy gave an emphatic display of power, precision and skill as they overwhelmed a most disappointing Abbeyside on a 1-28 to 0-12 scoreline. Following their four point 2-18 to 1-17 win over Dungarvan the previous weekend, the joint table toppers (with De La Salle) showed why they are now firmly at the head of the market to go all the way.

As referee Alan Kissane got the game under way it was a lightning start from the Black and Reds as they notched six unanswered points in as many minutes. Corner Forward Conor Power created

Blues back dining at top table after ten years 

Across the Back by Booter Wexford CF  0  Waterford FC  3

Waterford FC are back in the Premier League after ten years scrambling for crumbs in the First Division.

Twelve months ago the club were on their knees and at one stage it looked as if they might go out of business completely. Enter a gentleman called Lee Power who decided to take over the running of the club and he appointed Alan Reynolds as manager and he also brought in Pat Fenlon as the Director of Football. Mr Power revamped the club from top to bottom including scrapping the ``United'' from the name and rebranding the club crest. Top class players were signed and they were linked up with the best of local talent. Lee Power made it clear from the outset that

Round three completed

It was a full programme of JJ Kavanagh Senior Hurling Championship last weekend where the results made for very interesting reading as far as the groups and the qualifiers are concerned.

On Friday evening it was the turn of neighbours Tallow and Ballyduff Upper to "cross swords" with both teams looking to get off the mark and get their championship up and running. The winner would garnish a precious two points which ultimately could get them in a battle for the knockout stages while a loss would very much dent the chances of the loser and make qualification that much more difficult. Having been inactive for nearly five months it was good to get back some domestic action although in many of the games the lack of competition was visible with many players falling short of championship pace.
