Fermanagh 0-19
Wexford 1-11

LAST YEAR’S ALL-Ireland quarter-finalists Fermanagh got their 2016 campaign back on track with success after the long trip to Wexford today.

After losing out in the Ulster quarter-final to Donegal, Fermanagh started their recovery today with a five-point win at Innovate Wexford Park in their Round 1B qualifier.

Wexford got a first-half boost when Simon Donohoe netted but Fermanagh’s attacking duo Sean Quigley and Tomas Corrigan were in excellent form to help their side move ahead by 0-10 to 1-6 lead at the interval.

Donal Shanley struck four first-half points for a Wexford team that only trailed by the minimum at the break and were still well in the hunt.

Fermanagh suffered a second-half setback with the loss of Richard O’Callaghan through a black card but Corrigan was on fire as he struck six points in the second-half to finish with a total of 0-9 to his name.

That result booked their place in Monday morning’s Round 2B qualifier draw.
