Wexford Youths last night confirmed that dual inter-county GAA star Lee Chin has joined their ranks until the end of the season.

Youths are second from bottom of the Airtricity League Premier Division table and face a crucial home fixture against Bray Wanderers on Friday night - a game for which Chin has been added to the squad.

Chin comes with League of Ireland experience, having spent one season with Waterford United before returning to Wexford's inter-county GAA sides and is capable of playing anywhere in defence.

Meanwhile, Alan Dillon is Mayo's biggest injury doubt ahead of their All-Ireland final replay with Dublin next week as he seeks to overcome bruising to his left foot sustained in the drawn game on Sunday.


Mayo manager Stephen Rochford has revealed that Dillon sustained the injury prior to kicking an equalising point and had already his discomfort.

While there is no "structural" damage, Rochford confirmed, there is still a concern that the game might come too soon for him.

Evan Regan (head) and Cillian O'Connor (ankle) are expected to recover fully.

"Alan's is probably a little bit more of a concern. It will probably be the middle of next week before we know, but he is the only one who there is potentially any doubt about.

"We might know at the weekend whether the pace of the recovery is better than what is gauged at the moment, but really we won't know until the weekend moving into the early part of next week."

O'Connor woke up on Monday morning with a bruised ankle.

"He had a twist on the ankle with 10 or 15 minutes to go in the game. He didn't feel there was anything in it on Sunday, but he woke up on Monday with a little bit of pain and a little bit of swelling. There is no concern with him."
