Photo of the Month

This month two years ago, Al Shorta edged past Al Hudod 2-1 in one of the most memorable games in the club's recent history. Al Shorta had started the season off poorly and were languishing near the relegation zone, but they recovered with a series of impressive wins and required a victory against Al Hudod in their last group game to reach the next stage of the league and thus contend for the championship. The Harps went a goal down but club legend Amjad Kalaf pulled it back to 1-1 with Marwan Hussein then sending the Police fans wild with a last-gasp winner. This photo shows the players celebrating after the historic victory.

Video of the Month

This month seven years ago saw Al Shorta legend Hashim Ridha score his 101st league goal for the club, in an away game against Al Ramadi. It also turned out to be his last goal for the Police, as 'The Rocket' moved to Karbalaa the following season and retired from football in 2013. He has since become director of football at Al Shorta and is one of the greatest players to ever wear the Harps' green and white colours.
