Best Personal Soccer moment of all time: Scoring twice against a full Arsenal Youth Team when playing for Club 81(London) – Pat Galligan was the manager.


I LOVE ALBION BECAUSE: You should always support your local! 🙂


Lester Hurley served the latter part of his soccer career at both Ballinspittle FC & De Courcey Albion as a rock solid centre half/full back. He was part of the now legendary Albion team of 1998/1999 that won the League Cup. He now spends most days holding out for West Ham to hit the big time once more. He has been doing this with the past 29 years but we are sure his wishes come through eventually.
