Wexford FC Sign Five Players, Including Grandson Of Irish Footballing Hero

Wexford FC have been busy ahead of their 2020 campaign…

First Division side Wexford FC have secured the signatures of five players ahead of the new season. Conor English has re-signed with Wexford FC, while Coum Feeney, Lee Costello and Azeez Yusuff have also put pen to paper to play with Wexford FC.

Former Shelbourne player Craig Giles, a grandson of legendary Irish footballer Johnny Giles, will also play with Wexford FC for the upcoming campaign.

Speaking to Wexford FC, Giles said:

“With Shels I played at left back and centre half. Like all defenders I don’t like giving goals away but I like to get on the ball and try get forward and get balls into the box. I finished last season with six or seven assists last season. It’s a pretty ruthless division, a lot of teams like Longford and Drogheda have strengthened their squads so it’s going to be tough but I have faith that Wexford can improve on last season.”

“I think we’ll have a healthy mixture of young lads and experience, we’ll be looking to make Ferrycarrig Park a difficult place for teams to come to and try and get a run under our belt. It’s a bit of a challenge ahead for me but it’s a challenge that I’m excited for and I can’t wait to hit the ground running.”

Meanwhile, Liam Barry, a native of Glynn, has progressed through the underage system to sign his first professional contract with the club.

Wexford FC will be hoping that the signings will bring a much needed boost to the football club.
