Lyng hails Wexford youngsters

Wexford attacker Ciaran Lyng has praised the young defenders who laid the foundations for the Slaneysiders' big Leinster SFC win over Westmeath.

"All credit to our young lads especially - they shone brilliantly. From the fullback line up, they had a bit of a hard time," he said.

"Dessie (Dolan) and Denis Glennon gave them a hard enough time, but they stayed at it, stayed at it - they all survived."

Lyng scored 10 points in the 1-24 to 0-15 success to set up a semi-final meeting with surprise packets Carlow, and admitted he was surprised by the big tally posted by the team.

"It's a great score to put up. We had our targets going in at half-time and they were nowhere near 1-21 to 1-22. But we just kept going at them."
