'Friendly' faces defeat Limerick FC in pre-season tie

Former Limerick FC captain, Shane Duggan was on the scoresheet for his new side Waterford this afternoon

Former Limerick FC stars Shane Duggan and Bastien Hery were on the scoresheet this afternoon as Waterford defeated the SuperBlues 4-0 at the RSC.

Duggan opened the scoring, in this pre-season friendly, for his new side with a 17th minute score. The midfielder played an excellent pass for Izzy Akinade inside the penalty area and once the initial shot was saved by Jack Brady in the Limerick goal, Duggan followed up to head the opener.

Just nine minutes later it was another former Limerick FC star on the scoresheet as Bastien Hery made it 2-0 with a 25-yard strike beyond Brady.

Dean O'Halloran was next on the scoresheet for the hosts as he finished John Martin's through ball to the net in the 73rd minute, before the final strike of the game came from Dean Walsh, who curled a ball into the top corner of the Limerick net just three minutes later.
