Wexford Youths players celebrate goal against Cork City at Turners Cross

Stephen Quinn's Wexford Youths are in the final stages of preparation for tomorrow evening's rearranged clash with Cork City in the Women's Premier Division.

The pair met at the weekend (Saturday 27) at Turners Cross, with the women from the South East taking all three points in a two-nil victory.


Following ten games of the League of Ireland Women's Premier Division season, Wexford have struggled for consistency in results. The team many tipped to challenge for top honours finds themselves in seventh place, 12 points behind leaders Peamount.

But momentum is a strong word in football, and the prospect of back-to-back victories in less than a week can propel this side back into the conversation, as Youths manager Quinn knows all too well.

"It's been a tough period with results and players unavailable through injury," he told Beat Sport.


"But that's football, and we aren't a club to make excuses.

"Everyone has been working hard in training, and it was great to get some minutes into returning players last Saturday.

"We look to build on that win with another performance tomorrow."


While results have not gone to plan, patterns of play are evident, with this Wexford side generating cohesion and a clear understanding in their play.

Following Saturday's victory against their Munster rivals, the performances of Freya DeMange and Emily Corbet earned them a place in the team of the week, with the latter netting a sublime chip at Turners Cross.

Action is set to get underway tomorrow at 7:45 pm in Ferrycarrig Park, with tickets available at the gate. Alternatively, you can watch the proceedings live on LOITV.
