Massive congratulations to Moneyslane FC Reserves manager Gareth McDowell who tied the knot last Friday

Congratulations to Moneyslane FC Reserves manager Gareth McDowell from the club committee, management, players and fans on his wedding last Friday to Heather Gracey. Dowellsy is held in the highest regard by everybody in the Moneyslane Family and he certainly has blue and white blood coursing through his veins. Dowellsy spent decades as player and captain and after undergoing major heart surgery he stepped into manage our Reserves in 2013 and with his close friend and assistant Garry Anderson.

In their first season in charge 2013-14 we won promotion with 5 games to spare and won the league with 4 games to spare and also reached the O’Hara Cup Final narrowly losing to championship bound Dollingstown FC Reserves. This season 2014-15 he won the back to back League title with a game in hand and amazingly again reached back to back O’Hara Cup Finals. We only lost 2 league games all season and amazingly went through to the end of February undefeated, titanic achievement from our Lad’s.

In front of a capacity crowd of 2,500 at our official ‘Legendary’ opening of Jubilee Park, Dowellsy was delighted to play against the team he has supported all his life, his beloved Manchester United. He has his Moneyslane FC shirt signed by all the Legends who he played against, David May, Clayton Blackmore, Frank Stapleton, David Healy, Keith Gillespie, Michael Mols, Ray Wilkins, Sammy McIlroy, Louis Saha and Lee Sharpe. Amazing history there, World Cup winners, Champions League winners, Premier League winners, FA cup winners and Northern Ireland ’s leading goalscorer,

The fairytale continued as he also has the pair of boots worn by Louis Saha at Jubilee Park. Saha is a former Strike Partner with Rooney, Ronaldo, Van Nistelroy, Tevez twice winning the Premier League and the 2007–08 UEFA Champions League Final. He also won the Coppa Italia with Lazio only 1 year before the Jubilee Park official opening with the Final being played at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome in front of 70,000 fans. Special memories at our official opening that will never be forgotten.
