Great Goals on an eventful day at Nossegem (Weekend Nov 30th) Sticky


1sts were playing Forestoise in the first of 2 must win back to back games.The reverse fixtures will be played next Saturday. After Sigve opened the scoring 1sts gradually took control and the goals flowed . Midway through the second half we were leading 5-1 when the trouble started. One of the opposition players received a second yellow and then a long period of arguing with the referee ended with a second red for an opposition player. It did not finish there as after a volley of abuse directed at the referee he decided to abandon the match with over 15 minutes still to play. Our players were not involved in any of this and we will definitely be awarded the game 5-0 .

2nds again had a critical game against Realistes Mexico having gained only 3 wins all season which had put them perilously close to the relegation zone. They started brightly and had a great chance to open the scoring but missed the target. Nerves were calmed though when Kieran(making his debut) picked up a ball from about 25 metres out and hammered it into the net. Not long afterwards Ollie went on a long run tricking his way into the area and slotted home. Just before the break Abdel volleyed home a great cross from George and at half time it was 3-0 and the game looked won. However the 2nds do  have a reputation for making you sweat and the opposition got one back early in the 2nd half and added a 2nd with 10 - 15 minutes to go to make it 3-2 but we held on.

3rds,after their great win last week were looking for more of the same against Boca Subl but were frustrated in only gaining a 1-1 draw. Still this result keeps them in the top 5

4ths,after a surprising defeat last week turned in a strong performance to beat LTC 4-0. Jean Gabriel scoring 2 in the 1st half and Captain Manu and John Sparks scored in the 2nd half. This result puts them back firmly in the promotion race


The 2 Vets teams unfortunately both suffered defeats. Vets 1 started well with Stevie opening the scoring after about 15 minutes but Realistes equalised soon afterwards. Half time 1-1 and the game was a tight knit affair. The 3 points looked in the bag when Fraser finished well after a good move to make it 2-1. We had further chances but the opposition had some good players and they equalised to make it 2-2. They were then awarded a penalty but Chris J made a great save to keep us level. 10 minutes from the end they scored the winner after a sharp move/ The loss makes it even harder for us to stay in the promotion race.

Vets2 were up against one of the leading sides in the division Celtic Forestois. A spirited performance but the oppostion had the edge and scored once in each half to run out 2-0 winners.


Ladies Team play in the Cup tomorrow (Sunday)       .

Great day all round, 5 wins and a draw from 7 matches (Away games 23/11/13) Sticky


Overall a great day for the club with 5 of our 7 teams winning, including a great win by the Firsts against the reigning champions and a great start to the Ladies’ cup campaign with a 1-3 away win against great rivals British United.

Firsts got a great win away to reigning champions Brussels LTC, 1-2, with Cillian scoring the winner 2 minutes from time. What we wouldn’t have given for a similar result in last year’s title decider when it was LTC who got a late winner which decided the championship. Darragh in goal was MOTM which goes to show that it wasn’t an easy win, but it was just a great all-round team performance. The win leaves us just a point behind LTC and frankly well in the hunt for second place. If Brussels British keep winning – they won again today – then nobody will catch them at this stage, but let’s get into the top three and then worry about catching them!

Seconds drew 0-0. No details of the match are available, quite possibly there were no details. It seems fair to assume that Nick kept a clean sheet and that George yet again failed to score.

Turds, one of the season’s success stories after flirting with relegation last season, got a great 3-5 win at New Team thanks to a hattrick from MOTM Stefaan. His three and a goal from Emil put us 1-4 up in the second half, but to keep the game interesting for the home fans we gave away a couple of soft goals to make it 3-4 with 15 minutes to go. For 15 minutes we defended valiantly before Joaquin finally got our fifth goal to make the game safe, in the last minute. Great win! We are now firmly in fourth place, and moving up!

Fourths lost 5-0 to mid-table Duden Sport, which moves us down to 4th in the title race. No further details were considered fit for publication, and the result is hopefully an aberration in this otherwise powerful season.

First Vets won 0-1 at Tourinnois. The game was not a great spectacle for the fans, but one goal by David was enough to give us the three points which move us up to 4th place in the table. 4th place seems to be a popular spot this weekend.

Second Vets won 1-4 away. A powerful squad was strengthened further by the initial absence of Damo, and we took a quick lead through (not a typo) debutante Chris Hutchins who hadn’t scored since about 2005. But we conceded a silly equaliser to go in 1-1 at the half. Damo arrived and went on, as did Pietro, and we took control of the game. Carlos scored a great go-ahead goal and then caused an own-goal to put us 1-3 up, while Laurent (MOTM I think, but who knows how Terry's mathematics works?) made at least 3 miraculous saves to keep us ahead. A surging run by Damo and a shot/cross that went in off the goalie set up the final 1-4 win, our third win in the last 4 games.

Ladies played a vital cup match away to old rivals British United and won 1-3. Details are not available at time of going to press. Last year we reached the cup semi-finals, this year we're hoping to do even better!

Ladies win 2-3 away to save the weekend. Sticky


Pauline scored 3 absolutely beautiful goals with assists from whole team. In second half we started ok, but own goal followed by goal from free kick turned game to the nervous kicking of the ball with each attack from their side being a danger. Great team performance. Well done everyone.

Home games 16/11/13 (one of those days ...) Sticky


Sometimes you have to forget about the results and just focus on the simple pleasures of being outside running around for two hours in shorts on a freezing cold day in a fog so thick that you couldn’t see one goalpost from the other, when you could have been at in IKEA or stuck in traffic on the Ring.

Today’s results were nothing to warm the hearts of the fans who braved the conditions: Four defeats and two 1-1 draws. So we’ll try to keep this short:

The firsts played perenniel rivals Portugal and lost 0-3. Two early goals, the second highly disputed due to a handball, and a third in the second half. Concensus was that Portugal fully deserved their win and that we didn't play very well.

This season is probably the real test of whether FC Irlande can become one of the top teams in abssa, year after year. The past few seasons we’ve had a phenomenal crop of players. This year we’re struggling to fill some of the positions that have been vacated by departure or injury. We may not win the league, but we need to keep fighting for top-3, even top-5, and then when injuries ease and some of the younger lads step up, we need to be competitive again next year. The commitment is there, the results will come.

The seconds let 1-0 through an excellent goal by Ollie from a great cross by George. (yes I know). But we couldn’t hold on and they got a second-half equaliser.

The turds were playing a team below them in the table, but never got their passing game going to enable them to get on top. After a scoreless first half, our defense then fell apart for reasons which are not clear .. we conceded 5 in the second half, with just one consolation reply from Mark.

The fourths played top of the league and were very unlucky to lose 1-2, with the winning goal coming from a ball that bounced off a post. After conceding 2 to a very strong team in the first half, our second half was much better, we got a goal back through Kieran but couldn't get the equaliser. Mark got a very interesting bruise on his forehead for his troubles. These lads will probably win the league, our real fight is for second place. For now we stay joint second.

The first vets created a great chance almost directly from the kick-off, and created about 20 more during the game, but they wouldn’t go in. But having conceded against the run of play in the first half, we actually had to wait until the middle of the second half to get a equaliser, Stevie heading in following a shot that hit the bar and bounced down just on the line (impossible to see in the fog who shot it, and indeed we’ve only got Stevie’s word that he scored it …

Second Vets played top of the league and saw their 2-game win-streak come to an end. Down 0-2 at the half, we were dangerous going forward looking for the goal that would make it interesting but it wouldn’t come, and then a deflected shot made it 0-3. We finally scored with about 5 minutes to go, but then conceded two late goals to leave the final score a flattering 1-5. Left-back Damo was MOTM for some sterling defending mixed with a few pitch-lenght runs (with the ball) ...

A special appreciation to the fans who came out to watch bad football in cold weather – Elena, Caoimhe and Damo’s daughter.

Ladies play tomorrow, our last hope of a win this weekend.
