Rustler’s Collingwood Cup Final!

Queen’s advanced to the Collingwood Cup Final with a 4-3 win over University College Cork. Another two goals from Eamon Fyfe (to add to his hat-trick yesterday), one from Matt Hughes and Daire Rooney, again, adding the fourth, put QUB through.

See you all tomorrow at the Dub for the final, where our opponents will be UCD!

Updated Rustler’s Collingwood Cup Draw

The first round of Collingwood cup matches were played at the weekend. This now gives us the final draw for Collingwood week here. Queen’s will play Trinity College Dublin at 2:30pm on 5th February on Pitch 1. Hope to see you all there!

Rustler’s Collingwood Cup 2018

We will be hosting the Collingwood Cup, sponsored by Rustler’s, in February 2018, for the first time since 2004.

We would love to see, at the games, any former Queen’s players, especially those who played in the Collingwood in the past. A warm welcome awaits (free coffee/tea and biscuits for all).

Our Chairman has a welcome document with all the fixtures here.

New Club Information

The club information has been updated with pen pics and real pics of the Management Team and First Team Squad. This piece written by Bishop Tony is highly recommended.

A big thank you to Victor Robinson (Father of Adam) for collating all the information.

Pitch side advertising banners

The Queen’s Playing Fields at the Dub is a very busy place frequented by lots of teams and
spectators from many different sports.

Queen’s Soccer club is offering businesses the opportunity to promote themselves via advertising
banners at the number 1 Soccer pitch on the grounds.

If you are interested, or would like to know more, please contact our commercial manager Ivor
McGucken on 07889130260 or via ivor.mcgucken@gmail.com

New players trials

We had a total of 63 players at our trials on Monday and Wednesday of this week, a good number
considering the poor weather especially on Wednesday.

Spotting the best players among so many is a most difficult task. Our coaches identified those who
showed up best and invited them to our training. A number of the new players have been included in
our Colts team tomorrow.

Obviously, a lot of players have not been asked to stay with the club, and I am sure they are
disappointed. However, recreational 5-a- side football is available at the PE Centre on Wednesdays 2-
5pm and hopefully some of you will take part in that.

We are always keen to know of students who are playing for other clubs at a high level. These
players may want to come and try to make it with our first team or may want to stay where they are
and still play for Queen’s in the Collingwood Cup in February. Contact first team manager Peter
Thompson tommyt118@hotmail.com with your footballing CV if this interests you.

Finally, a big thank you goes to our coaches and our volunteers for all their help this past week.

First Team 2017-18
