Club Notes - 15th October2007 London Senior football Champions
The Senior Championship Cup is back in the Gaels clubhouse after a two year absence following Sundays rout against the KKG at Ruislip.
We had been favourites all year but never expected to inflict such a heavy defeat on the KKG with the boys on fire from start to finish with a score of 1-19 to 0-4.
It would be unfair to pick out any individuals on the day as it was a superb team performance all round.
Darragh Kinnevey won the man of the match award with the outstanding Fergus Mc Mahon hot on his heels.
Captain Hugh Cunningham received the Cup and thanked the Committee, Supporters, backroom staff and the happy management team of Maurice Carr and Paul Coggins.
The club would like to thank the huge support that came out on the day and really lifted the team on the occasion and made it a night to remember.Minors
The Minor team failed to retain the Championship against a strong St Kiernan’s team by going down by a score line of 1-16 to 0-7.
Credit to the boys for putting on a brave performance considering they were missing a few regulars with many on the under 16 team standing in.U16
Congratulations to the under 16 team on retaining the British Championship against Glen Rovers from Hertfordshire by a score of 4-13 to 2-6.
They were made to work hard in the first half but showed their strength in the second half with fine games from Kieran Nash in goals, Captain Gerald Geraghty, Rory Jennings, Ben O’Mahony, James O’Sullivan and Aidan Lynam.This Weekend
This weekend the club will be divided in two as the Minor board make their way to Cork with the under 16 team on a mini tour and the Senior team heading to Downings, Donegal for the Andy Duffy memorial Cup.Best Wishes
Best wishes to Pat Bierne and his family on their return to Ireland.
Pat (big Bear) joined the club in 1998 from the Desmonds and has played a big part with him being treasurer for three years along with playing for the Senior and Reserve teams.
He will best we remembered for scoring a wonder goal in the Paudi O’Shea tournament where his celebration run ended his football career!!
Not to mention he is the only man in the club to throw up on the warm up lap at training, we will miss him and his appearances at training.Paddy McConighley
It was good to see former player Paddy Mc Conighley making the journey over from Donegal to see his former team mates win the Championship on Sunday.
Connie is going for an operation on his injured eye this week in Belfast and we all wish him well with his recovery.Golf Day
Many thanks to Chairman Tom Mohan and Seamus Harley on another successful Golf day last Friday at South Herts golf club.
24 teams took part with the Mickey Moss team winning it with a score of 104!
