Wexford match-winner Porter says the goal “Was a long time coming”


Eoin Porter turned 18 years-old on June 10th, and on Friday night scored the winning goal as Wexford won an away match for the first time this season, with a 1-0 win against Cabinteely in Stradbrook. 

The young striker has already made 16 appearances for the club, which includes 11 starts, and the goal against Cabinteely was his first Senior goal.

Porter told theleagueofireland.com “I was delighted to get the winner, it’s been a long time coming and I didn’t think I would’ve been waiting this long for a goal when I played my first senior game against Sligo last August. However, I was delighted and hopefully I can get a few more before the end of the season.”

“It was a massive win, I think we played our best football of the season so far. We created lots of chances and could’ve won by more to be honest.”

Porter also had some great things to say about his manager at Wexford, “Damien (Locke) has always shown faith in me, which is great to have for a young player.”

“This season has been hugely progressive. I’ve played in many positions which helps me to understand the game more.”

He now hopes that’s Friday night’s win will give the side a boost, “The results have been very disappointing and it’s hard to have any positives, but hopefully Friday’s performance can be matched and even bettered for the rest of the season.”
