A great Over 30s win over arch rivals and a historic debut for Rocks Women

In spite of a setback for Glen Wrafter’s first team, this past weekend was a tremendous one for the Shamrocks.

The day began with a morale boosting and well deserved victory for the Over 30s against Manhattan Celtic at Randall’s Island.rocks women's team

Sean Riley scored twice in his first start of the season while Danny Parkin’s pinpoint accurate free kick summed up an impeccable performance from the Manchester man. Alex Berne scored in his second game in a row as Paddy Mc Carry’s men cruised to a 4-2 win.

Meanwhile, the new women’s team finally got things underway with their first ever Metropolitan Women’s Soccer League game.

A 0-0 draw against Phoenix was a solid start to their league campaign. Congratulations to Erin Cullen, Teresa Brink and Tricia Reed and also to club president Sean Mc Mullan for making this historic day possible.

Polonia were the visitors to St Michaels in the Cosmopolitan Soccer League Division 2 and they took a win and a draw back to Greenpoint.

A 2-1 defeat for the first team leaves them on two wins from three in the standings. Mohamed Fofana scored in the second half after good work from Joey Aronovsky and Nikle Guzijan.

Earlier, the reserves were unlucky to be denied victory, Sean Hand scoring on his debut in a 1-1 draw.
