Kevin O’Connor, Garrylough, Simon Donohoe, Curracloe and Graham Staples, Galbally, were all selected to play on the county under 15 football team recently.
Kevin lined out at wing forward, Graham at wing back and Simon at corner back. Their first game was against Westmeath which they won 2-11 to 0-7. The Shels men contributing well to the scoreline. Kevin scoring 1-1, Graham 0-1 and Simon 0-1. Wexford then played the winners of the other group game, Louth and this ended controversially with the ref’s final score 2-12 to 3-8 whereas Wexford management had the score 2-12 to 3-9 (a draw). Kevin O’Connor again notching up 1-1 for the model county. It was a good day for Shelmaliers with all three men playing both full games and giving a great account of themselves, and doing the club proud.
The same players were on the county team in July that beat Armagh and Roscommon.
These games augur well for Wexford’s chances in the forthcoming championship
