Our new field in Queens – St Michael’s Playground played host to two big victories in the Cosmopolitan Soccer League Division 2 on Sunday.

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!

Finally, it will be another historic day next Sunday as our new women’s team launches their season at St Michael’s Playground – kick-off 1pm.

Meanwhile, the firsts and reserves will take on Japan in Randall’s Island while the Over 30s play Barnstonworth:

FC Japan v Shamrocks, Randalls Island Field 75 6pm/4pm
Barnstonworth Old Boys v Shamrocks Over 30s, Randalls Island Field 74, 2pm

Up the Rocks!
