Club Notes - 10th December 2007
New Trophy Cabinet needed.
Its official, the trophy cabinet has collapsed after the arrival of two more cups at the weekend, following the Conway cup and under 21 Championship finals.
This season the club have managed to amass an amazing eleven cups from underage to senior level and make it our most successful season in our history.
On Saturday at Greenford the senior team thought their way through the mud and puddles to defeat Saint Brendans and retain the Conway cup.
Slowly we are starting to get our strongest team out with the all-Ireland Quarter final getting closer and competition for places hotting up.
Goals from Niall Quinn, Billy O’Mahony and Dave O’Brien were vital as the weather made it very difficult for long range points.
The Brendans never lie down even when their backs are against the wall they pushed us all the way, but with players like Fergus Mc Mahon, Dave O’Brien and Connor Burke on fire we stamped our authority on the game.
Final score TCG 3-6, St Brendans 1-2.
The Under 21 team made it three Championships on the trot on Sunday after defeating a gallant Saint Kiernans team by a score line of 3-10 to 0-11.
Played in difficult conditions these two teams put on an awesome show against the elements and entertained the large crowd.
It was the all important goals that separated them at the end with the Gaels finding the net in the first half through Mark Mc Nulty.
Playing with the wind in the second half and with the introduction of Andy Gallagher the Kiernans had it all to do.
The half back line of Aaron Somers, Billy O’Mahony and Kevin Mc Fadden were outstanding, not only in defence but attack as well, with the move of the game involving O’Mahony, Chris Maroney, and Declan Mullan and finished off by Somers in the back of the net.
It was a great team performance with the half back line, midfielders Paul Flanagan and Connor Burke while up front Tommy Moriarty and Mark Mc Nulty stood out.
Man of the match. Billy O’Mahony.
The club had an enjoyable day out at Sandown last Saturday were Adrian Byrne and John Toland had the bookies running for the hills after their big payouts. Seamus Harley won the award for best dressed for the occasion but he lost his hat on the day along with a few quid by all accounts.
It has come to that time of the year were the club are expecting a letter from secretary Stephen Mc Loughlin as its getting near AGM time.
From reports within the club the last letter he wrote was this time last year and if anyone in London has seen this man at a GAA ground please report back to chairman Tom Mohan.
He was last spotted in a Rock band somewhere in South Armagh scaring the life out of the local crows!
It was great to see loyal supporter Mary Toland back out at the club at the weekend following her recent illness, were she looked a picture of health alongside hubby John.
Our Easter seven aside tournament is on Easter Saturday 22nd March 2008.
Anybody or club in London who knows a club in Ireland who would like to take part in the tournament should contact email@example.com
