PUTTING THE BOOKS ASIDE TO FLY THE FLAG

23 August 2016

Wexford Youths Women commence their UEFA Women's Champions League campaign this evening in Ferrycarrig Park as they take on BIIK-Kazygurt of Kazakhstan (7.0).

The game will be the first of 3 games for Youths in the sunny South-East in the qualifying stage.

Throughout the years, many Continental Tyres Women's National League players have split their time between playing football and attending College and University. Currently, there are 35 players in the 2016 edition of the league who participated in the 2015/16 WSCAI competitions, with many more expected to begin their fresher year in the coming weeks.

Wexford Youths have had a successful relationship with IT Carlow and Waterford IT in recent years with a large amount of their players, male and female, having studied in both Colleges.

Thirteen women's players are part of the Youths squad embarking on a European adventure and we've underlined below their exploits in Third Level Football so far.
