The Wexford League season will resume on Saturday, July 18, with 14 youth league games to be decided, while a full programme of adult fixtures has been pencilled in for the following day.

The league executive have made the decision to cancel all domestic cup competitions, namely the Wexford Cup, Neil O'Sullivan Cup, Billy Browne Cup, Gwyn Jones Cup and Youths Cup, to ensure that leagues can be completed in the truncated season, which must end by September 14.

Gorey Rangers have an FAI Junior Cup quarter-final to look forward to and that game, away to Dublin side Usher Celtic, is due to be played on Sunday, July 26.
