John Owens has said he is really looking forward to Saturday's match against Limerick in the National Football League Division 4 final.
"A lot of work has gone into getting this far" Owens told Beat 102-103.
Saturday's game will go down in history in Waterford - it is the first time in 36 years that the Deise's footballers will grace the Croker turf.
1974 was the last outing; the same year James Blunt was born and the barcode was scanned for the first time.
Waterford were well beaten by Dublin then; but this time around John Owen's charges will fancy their chances having already defeated Limerick in the league.
The final pits the Divisions best scoring side - Waterford - with six goals and 123 points from 8 games or just over 17 points a game against the leagues best defence in Limerick.
They have conceded just 6 goals and 64 points - or just under 11 a game, a fact not lost on Deise John Owens: "Our boys are comfortable with the ball in their hand and were hopeful they will all turn up with their shooting boots on. Limerick are strong in a number areas and their backs haven't conceded too much and we know how good they are."
Throw-in is at 5pm on Saturday.
