First Division Wexford have continued their off-season recruitment drive with the signing of Cameron Power from local rivals Waterford.

The 19-year-old has played with the Blues’ under-19 set-up in recent seasons – and has also won the under-19 National League with Waterford.

He follows Jack Larkin who has also made the move from Waterford to Ferrycarrig Park in recent weeks.

Power has also played with fellow new signing Success Edogun, and he is hopeful that will help him settle into life at his new club.

“Wexford and Waterford have had some really tough hard battles at U19 level over the past few years, especially in the Cup so I know a good few of the lads from those games,” he told Wexford’s media team.  

“I also played with Jack Larkin and Success Edogun who signed a few weeks ago. Brian (O'Sullivan) had already seen me play so I was buzzing when he first rang me and asked me to come and train with Wexford.

“Thankfully it all went well so I was absolutely delighted to get the offer to sign."

He added: "Now I'm here I know I have to keep on working hard, every week at this level will be tough. Training has been really good so far, very intense and the lads have all been brilliant.

The goal is to break into the first team and get game time, establish myself really and come and test myself against players who have been playing at senior level for years.

“We have some pre-season friendly games coming up and then Cabinteely at home in the first League game next month so I'm really excited and can't wait to get going.”
