31 May – Ireland take 3rd place in Euro Teams

After a fairly mediocre season in the European Team Championship last year, the Irish team have managed to turn their performance around. We finished on a high, with a 4-0 whitewash of Portugal. This allowed us to pass Turkey, and take outright 3rd place in Division C. If our improvement in form continues, we may be in contention for a place in Division B next year.

Read on for some statistics…

Although we had 10 games, the one against Belarus was changed to a 4-0 win after Belarus were thrown out of the league. We also had a walkover win against Bosnia.

Our big boost this year was the impressive performance of Gavin Rooney, who was unbeaten.
