Our visit to Warrenpoint certainly wasn’t as the score would suggest, in fact the police were in this match and scored on the 70th minute only to have it ruled out, and this proved a costly decision. We then travelled to Armagh City and left with all three points – this was a tight enough game but the police were always in control.
On Saturday we hosted Lisburn Distillery in the 5th round of the Irish cup – again the police were in control of this match and ran out 2-1 winners with three goals disallowed for offside. Our reward for winning is another visit to league champions Crusaders.
This Saturday we travel to Dergview in what will be a very difficult match with both teams fighting for top six positions these three points would be massive. Let’s do this!!
The Under 20’s continue to impress with a comfortable win over Glentoran 2nds at Newforge. This Saturday they play Dundela seeking revenge from their defeat back in September – you can do it!
The management have been busy and have brought in some new faces; all will be made very welcome by everyone at the club.
Finally, many congratulations to Harry Campbell on being the youngest ever player to represent the PSNI first team, Harry aged just 15 years 361 days came on as a substitute against Warrenpoint, well done young fella!!
Onwards and Upwards,
The PSNI Football Club deeply regrets the sad passing of one of life's true gentlemen. Norman Irwin was a very senior RUC police officer. He was also a husband, father and grandfather. Norman was a gifted footballer. In the 1960's, before joining the RUC, he played against George Best, was a schoolboy international and played for Leeds United. On returning home he played for Portadown, Distillery and the RUC FC.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Norman's family circle.
