“It was important we didn’t lose” said Locke


Wexford’s Damian Locke spoke to us after Friday nights 0-0 draw against UCD.

He was very pleased that his side are now on a 3-game unbeaten streak, “Yeah it was a great result on Friday night against a very good UCD side. We went in with a game plan that demanded massive work rate and concentration levels for long periods of the game without the football and the boys were immense across the park.”

“We spoke in depth all week about not having a repeat of the recent Longford game following our win against Shelbourne, as it was important we didn’t lose Friday night and keep this run going.”

“Considering the 5 regulars we were missing we brought the 3 lads in from the start for their first league of Ireland starts and AJ (Lehane), Mikey (Byrne) and Dean (Kelly) were fantastic.”

“It’s left us in good form now heading into the game against Waterford next week who will bring a completely different threat to UCD but one we will be ready for.”
