In form Galway WFC host league leaders Raheny United
Galway WFC made it 3 wins in 8 days last Sunday with an impressive 3-1 win over Shamrock Rovers in Eamonn Deacy Park. Galway WFC took the lead through a Sinead Taylor penalty on 24minutes.
They doubled their lead via a long range strike from Lynsey McKey 6 minutes later. Galway at this point appeared to be coasting but were brought back to reality on the stroke of half-time with a great strike from Rovers’ Laura Traynor. It wasn't until the 60th minute that the home crowd could relax again when Taylor showed the Rovers’ defence a clear pair of heals and finish for her 12th goal of the season.
This Sunday at 2pm in Eamonn Deacy Park WNL champions and league leaders Raheny United are the visitors. Last Sunday saw Raheny drop their first points of the season when they drew with second placed Peamount.
Galway WFC manager Nigel Keady commented “Last week was an excellent week for us. To get maximum points from the 3 games, along with great performances has really got our season back on track. We are expecting a big crowd on Sunday for the visit of the dominant force in Irish women’s football. We know that we will need to bring our ‘A’ game if we are to challenge Raheny but with the performances over the last week I am confident the side can rise to the occasion once again and do just that.”
