There will be an official unveiling of the new jersey – which is kindly sponsored by Crana Electric – next Sunday at the Courtyard Ale House but the unofficial baptism was a good one, with Sean Riley scoring another brace, his strikes bookended by Adrian Morrissey’s first of the season and a Tayfun Gokmen penalty.

Meanwhile in Secaucus, Glen Wrafter’s first team suffered a setback in cruel circumstances at New Amsterdam on Sunday.

A double from Joey Aronovsky was not enough to get all three points – after dominating possession for most of the game, the hosts headed home in the 91st minute to get a share of the spoils.

Stevie Doyle’s reserves are still top of the table after they registered an impressive 3-0 win with goals from Paul McDaid, Leandro Fregossi and Sean Hand.
