Ryan Graydon, who scored the second goal for Longford Town against Wexford

Spurred on by a brilliant start with Dylan Barnett scoring the opening goal with just two minutes gone on the clock, Longford Town registered their first win of the season in the Airtricity League when they whacked Wexford at Ferrycarrig Park on Friday night. 

Wexford FC . . . 0     Longford Town . . . 3 

The Town bounced back from the disappointing defeat at home Bray Wanderers the previous Monday night in fine fashion and the lead was extended with a real gem of a goal from Ryan Graydon in the 22nd minute.

There was just no stopping Longford and Aaron Robinson got the third goal in the 82nd minute to cap the impressive overall performance which will certainly have pleased the manager Gary Cronin.

Next up for the Town is the clash against joint table toppers Galway United at Bishopsgate on Friday night, March 25, kick-off 7.45pm.  

LONGFORD TOWN: Luke Dennison; Shane Elworthy, Mick McDonnell, Dylan Barnett, Ben Lynch; Eric Molloy, Aaron Robinson, Dean McMenamy, Ryan Graydon; Darren Craven; Sam Verdon.

Subs:- Karl Chambers for Molloy (46 mins); Callum Warfield for Verdon (70 mins); Matthew O’Brien for Robinson (83 mins).
