Waterford midfielder Tommy Prendergast is basking in the glory of a rare championship win.

Prendergast played a starring role in the All-Ireland SFC qualifier win over Wexford last Saturday afternoon as the Déise progress to the next round.

In nine years involved with the Waterford senior footballers, this was only the Kilrossanty's second ever championship win and boy did he savour this victory.

"It's absolutely brilliant, My first year on the panel in 2010 was the only championship game I had won (they beat Clare). I was injured for the London one. It's great. Everyone here deserves this," Prendergast told the Waterford News & Star.

"I was at a wedding two months ago and I was with a few of the lads back from when we got promoted. A lot of the talk was 'what about the games we nearly won'. It was always nearly. At least now it's good to get that one and we can talk about the one we did win."
