Club Notes - 23rd JulySeniors
The winning streak continued last Sunday against Saint Kiernans in the League at Greenford, with the squad rotation giving fringe players their chance.
Young guns Chris Maroney, Tommy Moriarty and Billy O’Mahony did their chances of a Championship call up this weekend against Round Towers no harm, with some super football; especially Maroney with a brace of goals.
The defence give very little away to the visitors with Callaghan and Cunningham keeping the house in good order, while Fergus McMahon pulled the strings up front.
For some though the highlight of the game was a super goal from sub Stevie Keane, who intercepted a ball on the half way line went on and beat four men and stuck the ball in the top right hand corner of the onion bag to kill off the game! Keano is still bragging about it. He hasn't scored since a dubious point playing for London against Leitrim in 1997.
Final score TCG 3-15, Saint Kiernans 0-6 The Seniors play Round Towers on Sunday at Ruislip 4-30pm in the Championship.Under 16's
Well done to the under 16s on beating a strongly fancied Parnells in the Championship at Greenford last Thursday evening. It was a superb team performance from the Gaels in their defence of the Championship with good efforts from Captain Ger Geraghty, Aidan and Frankie Lynam and Liam Gavaghan.London International Cup - Chicago

The Club are advertising for a Life Guard after a recent incident. An unnamed member almost drowned in the nearby Canal after a heavy downpour. If that wasn’t bad enough he then narrowly missed being hit by a bolt of lightning while trying to escape the water. It is rumoured a sniper tried to take him out as well.
Someone out there has it in for him!!
