Kick-Off: 7:45pm
Referee: Paul Norton

Excitement is building as Waterford FC kick start the 2023 campaign on Friday night away to near-neighbours Wexford FC.

Danny Searle’s side will be looking to kick off the 2023 promotion push with all three points in Ferrycarrig Park, as the Blues take on near neighbours Wexford FC on the opening night of the season.

The Blues come into the game on the back of a busy pre-season, which saw tough challenges against Shamrock Rovers and St. Patrick’s Athletic along with a training camp to prepare for the new season.

The Blues squad features many familiar faces from last season with a mix of new exciting, experienced and youthful additions to Danny Searle’s squad.

The sides last met in league action back in September when despite leading 2-0, the Blues were forced to share the spoils in Ferrycarrig Park in a 2-2 draw.

From The Dugout: Speaking ahead of Friday’s match against Wexford FC, head coach Danny Searle said:

“We’ve been building towards the start of the season and we’re delighted it’s here. We’ve worked hard on the pitch for the past weeks and months and are excited to get the season started.

“It’s been a busy few weeks but all the players are looking forward to getting on the pitch on Friday and get the season started. It’s a long season but we’ll be looking to get a good start with some tough ties over the first few weeks.

“We’ve a good mix of youth and experience throughout the team and we know these players will excite the fans this season. The fans have been extraordinary, and we know how much we’ll need them this season.

“Friday starts a long season, but we can’t wait to get going.”
