Vee Rovers F.C.

The Moulson Homecoming/Gathering proved to be a huge success from start to finish. The project was a joint venture promoted by Vee Rovers and St Paul’s Community Council and a huge thanks to all involved. A special thanks to the Brunnock family who made the Moulson homestead available for the weekend and everybody who provided memorabilia. We look forward to forging stronger ties with the Moulson family and the people of Grimsby in the future.

In the midst of the celebrations came the sad news of the passing of Sean Flynn of the Bella Road. A great friend of Vee Rovers, Sean was a true gentleman who was hugely respected by all who knew him. The older members of the club will have fond memories of nights in his company at home and abroad, especially in Earls Court, Paddington and Slough. Seans greatest gift was his ability to reach both young and old, and in coming to terms with his death our greatest consolation is that we know that heaven is now a richer place. We offer our heartfelt sympathies to his family and many friends within the community.

Under 13s began their League campaign with a well merited win away to Clonmel Town B. Goals from Shane Crosse and Jack O’Shea (2) ensured that all the points came back to the Vee.

The Juniors team shared the spoils with Donohill at home on Sunday in their first League game of the season. Having accounted for Cashel the previous week in the shield, the home side had to depend on a late free kick from Sean Flynn to secure a point after Martin Grant had given us an early lead in a match that finished 2-2.
