Cork City travel to Ferrycarrig Park this Saturday 25th of May as they face Wexford Youth’s WFC in their latest Só Hotels Women’s National League game with a 6.30pm kick off.
City will be hoping to return to winning ways after a disappointing set of results. Cork City manager Rónán Collins ahead of the Wexford Youths game spoke on the work being done at training: “We’ve had 4 home games recently so back on the road this weekend to play Wexford. Training has went well again and the girls continue to work hard. Jess Lawton has done some work with the girls during the week. We’ve brought those exercises into training. These skills are only going to further help us in matches over the coming months.
He continued speaking on the threat Wexford pose “It’s our last game for a number of weeks so we’re very hungry to put in a strong performance. Wexford as always are experienced hard to break down and have a lot of quality up high that can hurt teams.”
Cork City defender Ciara McNamara reached her 100th appearance for the club last Sunday against Peamount and she spoke on reaching that milestone and Saturday’s game: “”We are all looking forward to Saturday’s game. I think we know we are better than our last couple of results suggest. As a group we know what’s needed to get a result from the game and we are prepared to work hard to get it. I’m delighted to say that I’ve reached 100 appearances for City. It’s great see how much progress has been made on and off the pitch since I started with the club. Thanks to everyone who has helped me reach this milestone and here’s to many more.”
Megan Sheehan and Savannah McCarthy are injury doubts going into the Wexford game while Lauren Egbuloniu has been confirmed to have picked up a long term injury, Rónán Collins spoke on this injury: “Lauren heard some disappointing news during the week about her injury so everyone in the club would like to wish her the best of luck with her recovery. She had done really well in the early part of the season and was settling very well into senior football. We’re all in no doubt she’ll come back even better.”
