London Olympians First Practice

The South London side now call Goals Beckenham North, on Copers Cope Road, home and head coach Riq Ayub could not be happier.

“We've been looking for a facility for about three years, for something we could be permanent with and somewhere we could call home,” Ayub said. “This is our first year, but it's a five-year plan.”
The ground ticks many boxes the club have been looking for, including: easy access, good quality practise surfaces (grass and astroturf, good locker room facilities, good quality field to host games, classroom access, storage and a social area.

Shamrock Bowl Conference North Preview

The new Irish American Football League season is almost upon us and so it’s time to preview the newly reshuffled League.

First off we have the reigning champions, the Belfast Trojans. The Trojans are still a relatively new team, having formed in 2006, but their mix of strong defence, dynamic offence and great off-field organisation saw them quickly rise to the peak of Irish American Football.

Their large squad, and great offseason recruiting, will be vital since they’re taking part in the EFAF Atlantic Cup as well as the League this year. The stars of the team, the Colvin brothers, Shamrock Bowl MVP Neil Montgomery and the strong offensive and defensive lines, will need to be on top of their game if they’re to repeat though!
