Saturday May 12th 2018 will go down as a historic day in the history of soccer in Wexford as the day a club from the league finally lifted the FAI Junior Cup after reaching the quarter finals and semi finals on several occasions in the past. The Wexford town side had reached the final in fine style with impressive away wins over Killarney Celtic and St Michaels so they went into this final fully confident in their own ability and from the moment the game kicked off, it was evident that they were well prepared and they were not allowing the big occasion get to them

They were very impressive in the opening twenty minutes and did allow Pike Rovers to settle into the game but unfortunately the final ball was just a fraction out although Paul Murphy and Robin Dempsey did go close. The break through came just after the half hour when Paul Murphy broke clear and got clipped by a defender before being taken down by the keeper and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot

Murphy himself stepped up and slammed the ball to the corner of the net for a well deserved lead and that could have been doubled before half time with the Wexford side dominant.

The second half performance from Pike was much improved as they came in search on an equaliser and they were rewarded on sixty two minute when a great individual run by Ian Daly saw him weave his way into the area and shoot to the net. The Limerick side looked dominant at this point and North End had Lee Walker to thank for keeping the sides level.

No further goals saw the game go to extra time where both sides were showing tired legs and the game ended 1-1 and onto penalties where Lee Walker saved Rovers third penalty leaving Graham Delaney to be the hero as he stepped up to score the fifth penalty for a 5-4 win

Well done to John Godkin and his backroom team for this well deserved victory and they can now enjoy a few days celebrations before playing out their league games which should see them wrap up the Premier title

Congratulations to all involved in the club and enjoy the celebrations
