Super under-17s turn on the style in Waterford

After having to wait to get their first win Wexford Youths registered their second 4-1 triumph in succession, superbly overcoming the challenge of Waterford United in their SSE Airtricity Under-17 League clash at the RSC on Saturday.

Vinny Quinlan netted a double for the Youths in last week's triumph over Cobh Ramblers at Ferrycarrig and he put in another stellar showing against Waterford which again yielded two goals.

Ciarán Murphy also got on the scoresheet for the second week running while substitute Danny Doyle completed the scoring.

After a difficult start to the season Wexford Youths seem to have found their stride and two wins on the trot has moved them up to fifth place in the Section 1 table.

There are eight teams in the section and the sides face each other home and away, giving every team 14 fixtures. The top two teams in each section, plus the two best third-placed teams, qualify for the quarter-finals.

Cork City are the runaway leaders with a maximum of 18 points after six games but Wexford Youths will harbour high hopes given their current form and will have a realistic chance of progressing as they lie only three points behind second-placed Cabinteely and two behind third-placed UCD.

Next weekend Wexford Youths will face a tough test to continue their turnaround in fortunes as league leaders Cork City visit Ferrycarrig Park.
