The Weekend Report: Goals Galore, Ireland Debut For Cooke & 1st Division Title For Farrugia

(17 Sep 2018)

By BelvedereFC.Com

















What a fantastic weekend for Belvedere and out ex players too.

‪Congratulations to former Belvo girl Rebecca Cooke, granddaughter of our club treasurer Martin, on making her Ireland U17 debut on Saturday is a 1-0 loss to Czech Republic.

Rebecca plays for Shelbourne ladies having spent some time with Belvo in her youth, playing as a goalkeeper above!

Ireland face the same opposition again today (Monday) in Waterford.

We'll have a special feature on Rebecca during the week.

















Huge congrats also to ex Belvo boy Neil Farrugia on winning the SSE Airtricity League 1st Division title with UCD AFC on Friday night.

The Students drew 1-1 with Finn Harps which was enough to clinch the title with a game to spare.

Winger Neil has been in excellent form in recent weeks and they have an FAI Cup semi-final against Dundalk in 2 weeks as well.











On the pitch, our U13 Major, U14 Premier and U15 Premier all recorded great wins on Saturday.

Our U13 Major boys (above) won 6-1 away to Lucan United. Josh Gorman (2), Bailey Kavanagh, Anto Burke, Jack Brady & Koi Mitchell got the goals 

The U14 Premier boys (below)  had a great win against Ballyoulster. Shane Forbes, Jad Hakiki, Ian Byrne, Sean Matondo, Shane Maher and Bobby Pender were on the scoresheet.












While our U15 Premier boys beat Leixlip United on Saturday. Goalscorer Evan Kavanagh is pictured below. He got the only goal in a 1-0 win.

Our U16 Premier lads lost 3-2 to St Kevin's on Sunday in a five goal thriller.














Finally, ‪Harry & Callum got the goals as our Saturday U10A1 boys put in a brilliant display in aDublin derby against St Kevin’s Boys.

Results in that age group are not recorded.
















Best of luck also to Brandon Holt (now St Patrick's Athletic) and Alex Dunne (now Shamrock Rovers), they'll be playing for the Ireland U17s against Turkey in two friendly games in Dublin this week.

We'll have more updates on that during the week.
