Maybe Half-time came about five minutes too late for them, but if we learn from yesterday’s performance we can still give this championship a real rattle and manager Davy believes his side will be the better for having the experience and we will be back again behind them in 3 weeks’ time when we travel to Cork on the 23rd for the All Ireland Quarter Final
Croke Park has not seen a atmosphere outside an All-Ireland Final like yesterday for a number of seasons thanks to 30,000 plus of our passionate Model Army who stuck with the team till the final whistle
Quote from our Manager Davy Fitzgerald, “I’m disappointed for the Wexford fans, they came up in such hope. I have to say one thing, I think if you look with five minutes to go the stadium was still full, they didn’t leave. I absolutely respect them so much for that.”
The Wexford supporters put in a winning performance and we will be ready to do it all over again in 3 weeks’ time
