Record entry for new Wexford Schoolboys League season

A RECORD 340 teams have been entered by the 45 affiliated clubs in the Wexford Schoolboys League for season 2022/23 with the action getting under way on Saturday next.

Glynn Barntown lead the way in the entries and will be fielding 18 teams from under-9 to under-16, closely followed by New Ross Town with 17 teams. Forth Celtic will have 16 teams in competition and Gorey Rangers have 15 teams entered.

It’s certainly a far cry from the 1985/86 season when Wexford Schoolboys took on an ‘new look’ with a streamlined even-age league with nine clubs fielding 19 teams at U10, U12, U14 and U16.

Wexford Albion, North End, Bunclody, Ross Blues, Ballycanew, Rosslare, Adamstown and Curracloe/Bridge Rovers were the trail blazers then and some of these clubs will again be competing for honours this season.

The new season will be launched at a delegate meeting which will be held in the IFA Centre, Enniscorthy at 8pm on this Thursday night, September 8th.

Following the AGM of the SFAI where its members made it clear their dissatisfaction with the FAI decision surrounding the U-14 LOI Season kick-off dates.

The SFAI note the statement by the FAI on Friday 1st July 2022 regarding the League of Ireland formats for 2023, in particular the U-14 boys. The statement refers to the underage working group, which included the SFAI along with other stakeholders and experts. The SFAI did not agree to the proposal that ended up with the Board, we did not know there was a proposal and were disappointed that the FAI statement that implies otherwise.

The SFAI want to make it very clear that the ‘working group’ was set up to overturn a decision made in November 2021 by the FAI Board to start the U-14 boys in July each year, following the completion of the standard/winter season for U-14 Boys teams. SFAI members of the working group were informed of meetings with very little notice and were disappointed that the decision was made before the workshop process was completed and confirm that no such decision or proposal was agreed upon or made by the workshop group. The SFAI position throughout this process was to engage in meaningful discussions.

Instead, the FAI chose to continue with this flawed process to give the pre-determined decision legitimacy. The SFAI throughout this process have on a number of occasions extended the opportunity for the FAI CEO to meet and discuss with Leagues, however, every invite was not taken up.

The SFAI will continue to engage with the FAI however this will be on a case-by-case basis if the FAI continue to ignore grassroots football concerns. The SFAI will continue to be guided by its members and take further action which will include but not be limited to the withdrawal of cooperation around, FAI Summer Camps, High-Performance recruitment and specific FAI Training Courses due to the lack of meaningful consultation.

Wexford under-16s bow out to Cavan/Monaghan

Wexford’s under-16s were in action in the SFAI Inter League Bowl semi-final against Cavan/Monaghan at St. Josephs, Kilmuckridge on Sunday last.

And despite leading as the game entered the final minutes, Simon Barnes’ team were ‘pipped at the post’ with the visitors running our victors on a 4-3 scoreline.

The Wexford under-15s are now looking forward to the Inter League Cup semi-final which is scheduled for Sunday, May 29th in the RSC, Waterford. Tommy Byrne’s team will be facing Waterford B with kick-off time 1pm.

If Wexford are successful in their last-four game they will play the winners of Waterford A and Galway in the final.

Well done to our league winners
