Waterford FC defender Sean Heaney says he’s looking forward to building on a winning debut as the Blues ran out 2-1 winners at home to Wexford FC in Heaney’s first Blues appearance after joining on loan from Shamrock Rovers last week.
“I loved every minute of it. I came here to get minutes under my belt and to start with a win was great and I believe we can push on from here," Heaney said.
"I only arrived in Waterford on Tuesday and I have been staying in a house with Ian McLoughlin and Derek Daly and those two lads have helped me settle in very quickly.
“I was told to help out Derek [Daly] down the left during the first half but when we went in front I stayed back because Derek was going one on one against their right-full back and we were very much on top at that stage."
Heaney’s debut was played in front of over 1,500 in the RSC, and the youngster has his sights set on a league winning medal with the Blues.
“I loved the atmosphere. I have played in Premier League games in front of crowds of 500 or 600 people but to see such an attendance was fantastic. We went in at the interval a goal behind but what I loved was the fact that the fans got behind us when we were going into the dressing room and that was wonderful.
“They stayed with us. I am looking forward to getting another weeks training and getting to know the lads better. We are in a good position now following this win and the other results went our way also. I am looking forward to next week’s game against Longford.
“I came here to win a league medal because a lot of players don't win league medals and I am convinced we can win this league with the team we have here. This is a good start to my time here and hopeful the management are happy with the job that I done.”
