On more than one occasion, Waterford footballers have been the bridesmaids in close contests, but that all changed when they defeated Antrim by one point last Saturday.

The win puts Waterford onto four points and lifts them to fifth in the table with two rounds of the FL4 campaign to go.

There were scenes of jubilation at the final whistle and match winner James McGrath told the Waterford News & Star that it was as much relief as anything to get over the line in a close contest.

“We’ve been in those situations a lot over the last couple of years and we’ve come out the wrong side of it,” said McGrath.

“It’s really good to come out the right side.” He added: “The way we’re playing in this league campaign, it doesn’t matter who gets up and down the field, it doesn’t matter who scores, it doesn’t matter who turns over the ball. It’s back to front at pace. We do play defensive at times but when we break, everybody breaks. Whoever gets on the end of it, it doesn’t really matter.”
