The NY Shamrocks will retain their Division 1 status in the Cosmopolitan Soccer League, it was confirmed on Tuesday.
The Rocks have been moved up to sixth place in the final standings of the CSL’s top flight after Polonia NY opted not to appeal an official protest regarding an ineligible player, thus forfeiting the May 15 league game between the sides.
The automatic 3-0 victory moves Kevin Grogan’s team up to 21 points, just three points shy of the play-offs and six points clear of relegated Polonia.
“We can now begin to properly prepare for next season as a club,” said Shamrocks President Sean Mc Mullan. “We are relieved to have this behind us and we look forward to Sunday’s League Cup final against Zum Schneider.”
