It’s a case of promise by name promise by nature for young Dublin talent Promise Omochere.

The former St Joseph Boys school boy and Bohemians prospect capped off a brilliant week for him personally and for young Irish attackers by scoring a historic goal for Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

The 22-year-old made it two goals in two games as he netted the winner for ‘The Fishermen’ in an FA Cup third-round shock victory over QPR.

Omochere volleyed home on the turn to secure Fleetwood a famous 2-1 and send the Cod Me’ into the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time.

The history-making strike was the wide attacker’s second in a week and just his second for the club,

following his first ever Fleetwood goal in a League One mid-table tussle with Shrewsbury Town last weekend.

It’s the latest stage of progression for a player who scored 10 goals in 48 games for Bohs and his manager Celtic legend Scott Brown is happy to see him refine his final third approach in recent games.

“Promise is one of the strongest people I have ever seen. If he puts his body in, nobody is pushing him off that ball.

“He just needs to keep working, keep getting that little bit fitter and work on that quality in the final third as it’s the link-up play we are looking for. It’s a learning curve for him.”Stephen Quinn and Danny Mandroiu were two other Dublin goal-scorers over the weekend but the former Irish International and the Shamrock Rovers playmaker lost in the colours of Lincoln and Mansfield respectively,
