Tipperary Cup TCG 0-10, KKG 1-4:
The seniors played KKG last Saturday at Ruislip in Round 2 of the Tipperary cup and came away with a scrappy 3 point win.
The result leaves us on 4 points after two games with Parnells the remaining game in this group.
McArdle Cup at Goodmayes, TCG 0-13, Thomas McCurtains 1-3
McArdle Cup at Greenford, TCG 0-8, St Anthonys 1-9.
The Greenford fixture saw the young lads start with 14 players and finish the game with 12 due to injuries.
Well done to the team on a magnificent effort with special mention for Eoin Higgins in goals, Aidan McGarvey, Ryan Elliot and Clive Mills.

In our group we lost the opening game to Ballinderry 1-4 to 2-6 and won our following games against Cross 2s, 6-3 to 1-3 and Castlerock Dublin 5-2 to
1-5. In the semi final we lost to the Hosts 1st team by a score of 2-9 to 2-2.
There were excellent performances from Ryan Rocks in goals, Marty Mc Coy and Eoin Magean outfield while pensioner Maurice Carr made a few appearances to show we have experience in reserve.
Many thanks to the Crossmaglen club for their hospitality.
