TOM ELMES was left mar­vel­ling at his side again af­ter their gutsy vic­tory over Peamount in the Con­ti­nen­tal Tyres Women’s FAI Se­nior Cup fi­nal on Sun­day.

The Wex­ford Youths boss re­it­er­ated that the aim for the sea­son was to take the league, but his squad are a re­lent­less bunch.

‘Look, I’ve said it af­ter the league ti­tle, if some­one had just of­fered me the league ti­tle this year I’d have took it. You’re go­ing to a club where they’re used to suc­cess, well, not used to it, they ex­pect it, and they know how to go about it in terms of their workrate.

‘With re­gards my job, it was to cre­ate that en­vi­ron­ment that they could go and do that and learn and be pre­pared as best they can go­ing into matches,’ Elmes ex­plained.

‘Some­times they don’t get the credit they de­serve. We’ve lost an aw­ful lot of play­ers this year. It’s only when you look at who’s ac­tu­ally left our squad you re­alise that the play­ers out there have re­ally dug in for the re­sults we’ve got this year.

‘I think in any league game you’re not al­ways go­ing to per­form to your best, but the sign of a good side is you have an off day and still get the re­sult you de­serve.’
