Flying Start for VEC in Storm Eunice!

VEC FC 2nds got off to a flying start when Paddy Cook shot us into the lead inside five minutes, then Jamie Ryder blasted home a free kick on 10 minutes to double our advantage against Fairview Celtic on the Clontarf Astro in Division 2A.
But that’s as good as it got for VEC FC as the home side knuckled down and were back on level terms on 30 minutes when they were awarded a penalty that Declan Fitzsimons, who bagged himself a hat-trick, slotted home, as Fairview went on to win 5-2.

Murphy Strikes Again!

Just like the buses, when you’ve waited so long to score, and then score two weeks in a row! This is Gav Murphy scoring a last-gasp goal for VEC in the 89th minute to ensure a 2-2 draw against Ashwood FC in Corkagh Park.  The home team found themselves two goals ahead after 57 minutes, when VEC eventually came to life and Ray Jaudzems pulled one back 10 minutes later. Thereafter we poured pressure on Ashwood resulting in Gav’s equaliser and another few good chances but no further goals in this Premier Division match played in dreadful weather conditions.
