Club Notes 1st October 2007

Senior Football

We retained the Senior League last Sunday against the Round Towers but not without a fight. It was far from being a vintage performance from the Gaels as we struggled to find our Championship form. A few of the fringe players were given their chance to claim a Championship place against a Towers team who had the better of the exchanges in the first half.

Shaun Campbell continued his good run of form in defence with Fergus Mc Mahon and Dave O’Brien looking the brightest up front. The second half seen glimpses of what we can do with JP Boyle and Chris Maroney finding their range, but in the end we just about deserved to win against a Towers team who improved considerably from the previous week.

On a down note we lost defender David Cannon early on in the game after a collision with a Towers player, which resulted in him being taken to Hospital, were it was found he had a broken leg. All in the club wish David a speedy recovery. It is expected that Dave will be in plaster for six to eight weeks. Final Score TCG 0-11, Round Towers 1-6.


Well done to the Under 16 team after they easily disposed of Saint Anne’s of Manchester in the British quarter final in Birmingham by a score of 5-19 to 0-2.

The boys are due to play again in Birmingham this Saturday in the semi final and hopefully they will be tested a little more, details of the game will be posted on our website later on in the week. Thanks to the mini bus drivers Vince and Philip and of course the ladies with the sandwiches for the boys.
