Youths up and running
As the clock continues to tick down towards Wexford Youths' Premier Division debut, the team's first pre-season friendly this weekend should attract considerable interest.
Shane Keegan's crew will be in action against one of the sides they have left behind in Division 1, south-east neighbours Waterford United, in Bunclody's fine facilities on Saturday at 2 p.m.
This game will be a chance for fans to see new recruits Aidan Friel, Danny Ledwith, Matthew Connor and Paul Murphy in action.
The club has partnership packages ranging from corporate season tickets at just €175 right up to larger scale opportunities such as stadium branding and jersey sponsorship.
Interested businesses may contact Shane Keegan directly on 087-6577256 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting, following the announcement that he has signed a two-year full-time contract and will combine his duties as team boss with that of commercial manager.
'My professional career has seen me spend the last 10 years in advertising and marketing so it makes sense that I get involved in that side of things for the club,' Keegan said.
'Promotion to the Premier Division will see the club's local and national profile increase significantly and I think that by entering into partnerships with local businesses we can create win-win scenarios for all involved.'
Meanwhile, the successful women's team will be playing at the same time on the next day when they travel to Bishopstown Stadium to take on Cork City in their second League Cup Group A encounter.
