Dual Wexford People Minor hurling and football Premier champions St. Martin's were announced as the club of the year.

After an excellent year for under-age in the county, St. Martin's had the unique distinction of not just playing in both Wexford People Minor hurling and football Premier county finals, but also qualifying for both Senior finals.

Many clubs stepped up to the mantle during the course of the championship but, given their remarkable double achievement, it was no surprise that St. Martin's were the choice as club of the year.

Second spot was filled by Oylegate-Glenbrien, while Ferns St. Aidan's were third.

Clubperson of the year was former inter-county footballer and hurler, Seamus Hughes, from the Kilanerin-Ballyfad club.

Seamus, who represented his county in all grades, while also helping his club to considerable Senior football success, took on the role of selector on his retirement.

And it's at under-age level that his talents are seen to great effect, particularly from Under-10 upwards, where his coaching ability, guidance and training skills are so much appreciated by the young players.

Seamus, through his hard graft, has helped Kilanerin to emerge as a top-class under-age set-up. He was a popular winner.
