Faythe Harriers have been given a boost ahead of the final round of this year’s Wexford Senior hurling championship…
Faythe Harriers played St Annes in the rescheduled game between the two sides yesterday evening. To the surprise of many, Faythe Harriers came away with the victory, defeating St Annes in a low-scoring game, on a scoreline of 13 points to 11.
For the first four games, one glaring omission from the Faythe Harriers panel was Richie Lawlor. An inter-county hurler, Lawlor would be one of the major players for the Wexford town side.
Lawlor opted to travel to America this summer as he enjoyed playing hurling with Father Tom Burkes, North East GAA Club based in Boston.
Rumours spread around the town and the neighbouring parishes about his potential return and those rumours were confirmed yesterday evening following Faythe Harriers win over St Annes.
Liam Spratt, who was doing commentary for Wexford GAA on the Faythe Harriers vs St Annes game, broke the news.
Speaking to Faythe Harriers player Josh Sheil after the game, the news was confirmed that Richie is back in the country and that his return is imminent.
“Definitely a boost. Glad to have him back. Happy to have him back – and hopefully he won’t be jet-lagged or anything. He’s a crucial man for our team – just can’t wait to get him back and get him on the field,” he said.
Lawlor’s return for the Harriers will be a welcomed boost for the club. After their win yesterday, the Harriers are currently on three points – but there is a huge battle to avoid relegation taking place in that group. Oylegate are on 3 points, but they’ll face Glynn-Barntown who are on one point. A win for Glynn-Barntown and a loss for the Harriers against St Martins would see all on three points and then it goes to a head-to-head mini-league between those three sides.
