Stake: 1

Match date: 23/04/2021

First Division

Athlone have shown huge improvement this season. Usually they are the worst team in Ireland and big favourites to finish bottom. Pre-season though, they signed some cracking players, many with Premier Division experience.

The best is probably Kurtis Byrne who has played for all of the best teams in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Wales. He is too good for this league and looked it as he scored both goals in Athlone’s 2-1 win over title rivals Bray. Travelling to Bray and beating a strong First Division side just shows the improvement they’ve made. 

They’ve also had an opening 2-2 draw at UCD who lie behind them in 2nd place, another excellent result. This was before a hat-trick of wins over Galway, Cork and Bray. 

Wexford are usually the side that Athlone battle to avoid bottom spot. Unfortunately for Wexford, they haven’t shown the improvement of their opponents. Currently played 4 lost 4 it’s looking like a tough season for them. Worryingly, other than Shelbourne, they haven’t played anyone with real quality yet. 

Teams can improve throughout the season but Wexford need to show big improvement and fast or they will likely find themselves cut adrift from the better teams in the league. 

It’s just hope the improvement doesn’t start today.
