With a depleted squad we travelled to Institute and almost left with 3 points. Dowler scored a screamer from 30 yards giving the home keeper no chance. Stute threw everything at the police however, the police had a determination about them – maybe September 2016 was on their mind when they didn’t do themselves justice. As a team the police defended from the front but also created chances too. Institute to their credit kept going and were harshly awarded a penalty which was superbly saved by in form Jordan Williamson. Institute were rewarded for their efforts with a goal in the dying moments.
A lot should be taken from this result – the police sit proudly in the top half of Championship One – and deservedly so!!
This week we travel to Champions Warrenpoint who will no doubt want to put last week’s defeat behind them - we can do this!
The Under 20’s got back to winning ways with a great win over Institute Under 20’s - well done now let’s do the same against the Welders!
The PSUK team were narrowly defeated in Northumbria in the semi-final of the PSUK cup and sadly will miss out in the glamour final hosted at the King Power Stadium. We have so much to look forward to for next year with some fine police players currently and still to go through Garnerville.
From all at the football club may let me wish everyone a very Happy Easter?
Onwards and Upwards,
Difficult to comment when you are not in attendance however, I have been informed that our performance away to Loughgall wasn’t great, but that happens, that’s football. Again I missed Saturday’s match as we hosted the Comrades who after a great win over Warrenpoint would have been confident of securing 3 points at Newforge. The police set up as best they could with quite a few key players missing. They defended superbly from front to back and deservedly claimed all 3 points with a well taken goal from March player of the month, Darius Roohi . The Comrades will feel disappointed as Williamson and the back four thwarted them time after time.
On Saturday we make the long journey to Institute, our last visit in September didn’t go to plan – again we travel with a slightly depleted squad but set up as we can and I am confident we can make amends.
The Under 20’s were narrowly defeated on Saturday but have a chance to get back to winning ways when they host Institute U20’s at Newforge – it’s all about belief.
On Wednesday 12th April the police team travel to the North of England where they will play Northumbria Police in the semi-final of the PSUK cup (British police cup)a win would see them travel to Leicester to play the final in the King Power Stadium – let’s do this!!
Onwards and Upwards,
