    Two players - Rianna Jarrett and Carol Breen - included in today's Irish senior panel for training in La Manga. Rianna has re-signed for Wexford having returned from USA.

    Well done to both.

    Excellent win by the home side against UCD in a very cold Ferrycarrig this afternoon as a result of Wexford dominating the second period. First half was virtually devoid of chances although UCD looked dangerous with the useful Julie Ann Russell doing well down UCD's left. However, Mary Rose Kelly in the Wexford goal hardly had a save to make during the first half. Nearest to scoring in the first half was Wexford's Carol Breen who nearly managed to steer the ball home after a Wexford free-kick, but it was saved at the post by McGuirk in the UCD goal. 0-0 at half-time.

    First goal came after five minutes of second half when Clare O'Riordan won the ball from a UCD defender and crossed for Carol Breen to despatch neatly into the UCD net for 1-0. Wexford continued to be the better side during the second period, and after 22 minutes, Wexford had a penalty claim denied but the ball broke to Clare O'Riordan who smashed it home from an angle from 15 yards out to make the game safe at 2-0. On the half-hour, Wexford went 3-0 up when McGuirk in the UCD goal had a swing and a miss at a rolling ball to leave Clare O'Riordan to tap home for 3-0. Substitutions during this half for Wexford were Aoibhin Webb, Shauna Wall and Rachel Hutchinson. Mary Rose Kelly's first effective save came in the last minute when she managed to tip over a point-blank header by UCD to keep a clean sheet. Match finished on 3-0 scoreline. Best for Wexford were the midfielders of Edel Kennedy and Kylie Murphy, while Clare O'Riordan led the line very effectively and Nicola Sinnott mopped up everything at the back for Wexford. Excellent result for the home side with two key players of Rianna Jarrett and Jess Gleeson both missing through injury.

    Pivotal moment in today's match against Cork came as early as the fourth minute when Carol Breen was through on goal for Wexford and got taken down by a Cork defender. Ref Sean Grant flashed a red and awarded a free to Wexford outside the box. First goal for Wexford came after 12 minutes when a free by Kylie Murphy sailed all the way in at the far post for 1-0 to Wexford. Second goal for Wexford didn't happen until 40 minutes but it was 4-0 at half-time. Second half was more or less about how many Wexford would score and it finished 10-0 at full-time with Clare O'Riordan (4), Carol Breen (3), Kylie Murphy, Shauna Wall and Becky Cassin being the goalscorers. Very bad clash of heads towards the end between Shauna Wall and a Cork defender meant that both sides finished with nine as Edel Kennedy had already been taken off for Wexford as a precautionary measure with all subs. used. Very comfortable win as the scoreline suggests.

    Shocking news in this week's local papers about Rianna Jarrett. Playing her first senior international against Norway on Ireland's recent trip to La Manga, she has now done her anterior cruciate ligament for the second time in less than three years at the age of only 21/22. Needs an operation and many months of recovery. Very best of luck to her.

    Brilliant photograph from Wexford Women's win against Raheny last Sunday. Class reaction from the goalscorer - Aisling Frawley - and from the two Raheny defenders.

    Cork Defender sent off was Ciara McNamara, defender who went off injured was Norma Healy.

    Great to see three Wexford players - Jessica Gleeson, Ciara Rossiter and Nicola Sinnott - making their senior international debuts in 3-0 defeat by USA tonight.

    Big gulf in class as WYW put eleven past Juniata, a college team from Pennsylvania on a pre-season tour of Ireland in Ferrycarrig tonight. Wexford were 5-0 up at half-time and made seven changes at the start of the second period. Juniata didn't have a shot on target for the 90 minutes. Goalscorers were, subject to correction, Carol Breen, Nicola Sinnott, Ciara Rossiter (2), Clare O'Riordan, Maria Delahunty (2), Aoibhin Webb (2), Becky Cassin and Emma Hansberry.

    Juniata have a blog in regard to their trip here.

    Best of luck to Laura Heffernan, Assistant Manager, who is taking up a full-time coaching position in the USA. This follows the recent departure of Irish senior squad member, Carol Breen, to Australia. Both are big losses to WYW.

    Extraordinarily bad luck in injury terms for Rianna Jarrett who I described a few seasons ago as the best forward playing domestically that I've seen. Since then, she has played in USA and suffered an ACL injury. In February 2015, she went to La Manga, Spain on a national training session and got another ACL injury. She then recovered and played a few games for WYW and was recently selected in the Irish squad to travel to the Cyprus Cup which is currently taking place. Six minutes into her debut, she has now suffered an ACL injury for the third time.

    Good to see Claire O'Riordan finally getting her first senior cap today against Hungary even if only for four minutes.

    After Rianna Jarrett doing her ACL for the third time two weeks ago, another of our senior internationals, Ciara Rossiter, has now done her ACL. It's like a ****** epidemic.

    Important win for WYW in their quest to retain the league title in Jackson Park tonight, beating UCD Waves 2-1. Claire O'Riordan and Edel Kennedy with the goals.

    Wexford Youths Women have signed Orla Casey, Aoife Prendergast and Leanne Tumelty in advance of the new season. Orla and Aoife are from Kilkenny and Leanne from Carlow, from what I can make out.
