Fall season is here with our first training this Wednesday, August 3 at 8:00 pm at the Taipei Medical University field. We’re looking to build on our spring success as we work towards the Asian Gaelic Games this November!
The Celts started the 2016 season with a return to the South Asian Gaelic Games. Both the Men’s and Women’s teams took home some silverware as Junior B and Junior A Cup Champions, respectively.
The Men went 1-3 in the group stages to put themselves in the Junior B Cup Final. They then dominated the Thailand Tigers to take home their first ever trophy from the South Asian Games. The women split their games in the group stage 2-2 to land in the Junior A Cup Final. Superb play from forwards Éadaoin Close and Amy Bucek helped carry them to a victory over Thailand B for their second championship in their last two tournaments!
May saw the return of everyone’s favorite off-season activity, Sloshball! Over 60 people turned up this year to play and spectate. This year’s new location next to the Songshan Aiport was a hit! Paul Rose’s Sloshed Ballers took home the trophy with a close victory over Sam McCoy’s Green Eggs and Sam in the final.
