Man Utd’s Wes Brown confirmed for June’s Legends game as Rocks return to action

  • Wes Brown will play at the Robbie Walsh Memorial Exhibition Game
  • Keady and McKeon drafted in for Shamrocks Legends XI
  • First team, reserves and Legends return to league action
  • Club secures new home field!

Wes Brown

Wes Brown will line out for the Manchester United Legends XI in the Robbie Walsh Memorial Exhibition Game at Gaelic Park on Saturday June 22.

With just under 100 days to go to the biggest event in our club’s history, Brown joins Brian McClair, Keith Gillespie, Clayton Blackmore and Kleberson for the veteran Red Devils’ first ever tour to New York City where they will take on a specially assembled Shamrocks Legends selection of players.

Brown holds five Premier League medals and two Champions League medals and he has also represented his country 23 times including appearing at the 2002 World Cup.

Two more Rocks Legends were also added today – Jim Keady and Anto McKeon will pull on the green jersey in June.

Anto was an ever present left back on one of the best Shamrocks teams in the club’s history. Back in the day he was a Roberto Carlos figure who could bomb up and down the field for 90 minutes. He says he’s more of a “stay back and hope no one runs behind him” defender now. We passed that information on to Keith Gillespie who says he’ll be hovering around Anto all day.

Jim was a colossal goalkeeper who starred alongside Anto in the early 2000’s. He’s now a prominent activist in New Jersey and believes his time with the Shamrocks prepared him for a career dealing with dodgy politicians and their uncalled-for tantrums. Jim keeps himself in good shape which will be useful since his defense on June 22nd will have a combined age of 206.

Meanwhile, Spring action begins on Sunday with all three teams in action facing their Doxa counterparts.

It will be a special afternoon at the newly revamped Frank Principe Park where the Shamrocks Legends will be the first team of the current era taking to the new field. This is a huge development for the club and a return to what was formerly Maurice Park after over 25 seasons of soccer.

The 1pm game is an important one for John Riordan’s fifth-placed team as they bid to leapfrog fourth-ranked Doxa who currently hold the final play-off spot.

“We are very proud to be the first Shamrocks team to play at Frank Principe Park,” said Riordan. “As a club, finding space to play on is always our biggest challenge and the work put in by club president Teresa Brink and club secretary Kailey Walsh is hugely appreciated. We are aiming to start there with a win – it’s very important on a number of levels.”

Elsewhere, the firsts and reserves head to New Rochelle’s Skidelsky Field for a double header at Doxa (1pm and 3pm).

Kevin Grogan’s men are currently three points clear in third spot but are missing some key players for this one because of work commitments. The last time these two sides faced off, the game ended in a 3-1 victory for the Shamrocks in mid-September. Doxa are third from bottom in the Division 1 standings.

“It’s a tough week for us with so many missing due to work but that’s the nature of the beast,” said Grogan. “It’s a great opportunity for our squad to dig deep in what is a massive game for us.”

The curtain raiser will pit second placed Shamrocks Reserves against second-last Doxa Reserves.

“The lads are excited to get back to playing competitive football again,” said coach Dan Meola. “We’ve had a tournament and some friendlies during the long layoff but nothing compares to League and Cup play. Everything that happened in the first half of the season must be forgotten. We all start with a clean slate in 2019 and no opponent should be underestimated.”

Courtyard clinches King McCormack Cup at Sunnyside Gardens

The rain didn’t dampen spirits at Sunnyside Gardens on Sunday as the Shamrocks enjoyed the largest player turnout in recent memory for its annual Six-Aside Co-Ed Soccer Tournament.

Eight teams – sponsored by eight different bars and companies – took to the field for a competitive but fun event that paved the way for an exciting season ahead which is now just over two weeks away.

In the final, Zachary Gosse’s Courtyard sponsored first team clinched the King McCormack Cup after grinding out a 1-0 victory over Robbie O’Neill’s fan favorites, the Bar 43 sponsored Shamrocks 1960 squad.

Although the muddy conditions prevented the traditional kids’ race, the semi-finals provided more than enough entertainment for the resilient onlookers with the GTI Alumni team and The Chelsea Bell Reserves team each succumbing to Bar 43 and The Courtyard respectively.

The other sponsors who helped make the day happen were The Wolfhound, PJ Horgans, Solas Electrical and Mc Guinness’s.

“It was a great day and everyone contributed to help make it a memorable occasion,” said Club President Teresa Brink.

“I am very grateful to everyone who sponsored the teams and to all the players who came along to compete. Congratulations to Zach and his team and well done also to Robbie and Bar 43/Shamrocks 1960 for bringing a lot of fun to the final.

“We love hosting this event at Sunnyside Gardens and I want to thank the committee for all their help and being so welcoming to us. We can now look forward to the new season with great excitement and optimism!”
