Coup-loving Aungier Celtic were at it again last week as they confirmed Ger ‘Buzzer’ Rowe as their first team manager.

The Dublin side have big signing previous having previously brought Senior Sunday capable frontman Jake Donnelly to Dublin 2.

Now they can lay claim to having a big-name frontman and a big-name manager, which is particularly impressive considering they only play Saturday football.

Rowe is one of the more famous amateur football names considering he won everything there was to win during an eight-year stint at Crumlin and alongside current league title winning Crumlin boss, James Lee and Martin Cramer, he was one-third of a legendary amateur midfield three.

The former silky Shamrock Rovers number 10 has been coaching in recent years, first working alongside Lee Roche at Liffey Wanderers before moving to Aungier.

‘Buzzer’ joined Celtic last year, at first as a coach, but dusted off the boots and took to the field in what turned out to be a historic season.

The Inner City outfit celebrated league success in their first-ever Leinster Senior League Season.  

At first glance Major 1C Saturday triumph may not seem anything to shout too loud about but it was the division was also home to Kilbarrack United’s Saturday side, so to win the title they had to better a team so full of talent they reached the Leinster Junior Cup final, and were 90 minutes away from the most famous Leinster Junior Cup victory of all time.

That win suggests Aungier could be a Saturday side to look out for in the likes of the FAI Junior and Leinster Cup next season.

With Rowe at the helm and 34-goal fellow former Shelbourne and Crumlin player Donnelly up front they will certainly attract attention.

Possibly the best Saturday side in the country and FAI Junior Cup open draw regulars, Crumlin United

have also confirmed managerial change.

Paul Pollard, Mark Meehan and former Crumlin No 1 David Meehan take the wheel at the second-string juggernaut. ​
