It has been a far from perfect start to the season for Wexford FC..
UCD ran out 6-0 winners over Wexford FC last night,.
It was another night to forget for Wexford FC.
It was a terrible start for Wexford FC; after just one minute of the game, their goalkeeper Jimmy Corcoran received a straight red for handling the ball outside of the box.
UCD are one of the top teams in the First Division. Even though it would have been a difficult game for Wexford to attain some points from, the referee ruined all chances of that in the opening minute.
People across social media have discussed the sending off, with some calling it a “bizarre” and “crazy” decision by the referee. Firstly, it was in the opening minute of the game and then secondly, Corcoran’s hand-ball did not stop a goal-scoring opportunity.
Wexford FC uploaded a video of the incident to their social media platforms:
Wexford were then forced to play one of their outfield players, Karl Fitzsimons, between the posts.
UCD were just too good for Wexford FC, and sharpshooter Colm Whelan, who netted a hat-trick, was too difficult to control in attack for the Dublin University.
This season, Wexford FC have played six games in the League and they are yet to receive any points from any of those games. They currently sit last spot of the First Division table.
