It’s play-offs time for the Shamrocks!
The Shamrocks Over 30s will be in action Sunday morning in their Division 1 semi-final.
Central Park Rangers Old Boys will be the opponents at Randall’s Island 75 – kick-off 8am.
The Rocks will be trying to set up a first final in three years for the club after Paddy Mc Carry and Sean Mc Mullan masterminded the Over 30s title victory in 2012.
The Over 30s have only been beaten once all season in the league and have rolled through the spring undefeated on their way to easily securing the East.
Mc Carry has a full squad to choose from on Sunday after last weekend’s 5-1 win over CPR Grays and will be looking to his big scoring strike partnership of Tayfun Gokmen and Sean Riley to secure passage to the May 31 decider.
“We’re taking it one game at a time and not thinking beyond Sunday morning,” said Mc Carry.
“I’m very proud of the lads. We’ve had 14 wins and we’ve worked hard for each and every one of them. But it will count for nothing unless we can push on to the final so we’re very much focused on Sunday.”
Pablo Graham and Eugene “Bingo” O’Drsicoll are both carrying knocks but should start at the back on Sunday.
“It’s going to be a hard hitting game of football just like the league game but our defense has been excellent all year,” added Mc Carry “If our front men are on their game we just proceed to final but it won’t be an easy game.”
