The Wexford hurlers and Wexford footballers will host a home double header this Saturday evening…
If the Wexford hurlers are to keep their hopes of Leinster Championship glory intact, they’ll need a win and the two points on the board. Likewise, if Paul McLoughlin’s footballers want their 2019 campaign to last longer than mid-June, they’ll need to advance past Derry in the first-round of the qualifiers.
