Another superb weekend for the Shamrocks!

Firstly thank you to everyone who supported our golf outing on Saturday at Forest Park. It was just our second year of organizing an event like this and we’re all learning as we go along. It will be bigger and better next year.

On the field it was an almost perfect weekend. The only slight blip was that the long-awaited debut for the women’s team’s being delayed by a week due to a forfeited game.

Sunday brought three wins from three, 14 goals and none conceded.

Paddy Mc Carry and the Over 30s got their league campaign going with a solid 2-0 win against Barnstanworth. First half strikes from Tayfun Gokmen and an exquisite volley from Alex Berne ensured the three points.

Up next were the reserves – Stevie Doyle’s team enjoyed an easy 7-0 win against Japan. Goals spread evenly either side of the half with John Riordan, Leandro Fregossi, Jim Wong, Paul McDaid (twice), Dan Meola and

Last game of the day saw the first team round off a great afternoon of soccer, scoring big again to beat Japan 5-0. Five second half goals gave Glen   Wrafter’s men their second win in a row.

Four goals came from two of the new boys: Leo Nizzi and Mohamed Fofana both getting a brace with Brendan Lane’s first goal of the season sandwiched in between Nizzi and Fofana’s efforts.

All three men’s teams play at home next Sunday with three tough games expected. The firsts and reserves play Polonia at St Michael’s at 1pm and 11am while the Over 30s take on arch rivals Manhattan Celtic at 8am in Randall’s Island.

Up the Rocks!

Great start to the new season

It’s a long year ahead and Saturday’s golf outing in Forest Park is the next vital step in ensuring all three teams have everything they need to put on a good league challenge.

But congrats to the first team on their thrilling 5-3 victory against league champions Iberia.

Mike Stone’s hat trick was pivotal while there were impressive performances from debutants Santiago Rigby and Mohamed Fofana.

Well done to Stevie Doyle and the reserves who deservedly won 2-1 with a dramatic late winner from Paul McDaid.

It was a big step forward for the club to enjoy our first wins of the season at our new field in Queens. Well done Sean Mc Mullan, Eddie Gilmartin and Eoin Sweeney for ensuring the field was ready with nets and flags all set up.

Thanks to everyone who went back to the Courtyard. Their support is vital and with home games on Sunday this season, there’ll be regular opportunity to go back and celebrate there!
