Fresh from a 2 point victory over St Clarets a week ago, our senior men’s team are back in action this weekend as they take on Wandsworth Gaels on Saturday 18th August at 2:00pm in Greenford. This is a second round championship fixture and a win would all but ensure qualification for the semi-final stage.
Training continues for the lads this week on Peckham Rye Common on Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7:15pm. We are always on the lookout for more potential players and if you are interested in joining our welcoming club, contact Enda on 07522 723765.

With the school summer holidays upon us, the youth side of the club take a well-deserved break. The Reserve team have been in action with a fantastic win over NLS in the League Semi-final. Score 4-08 to 2–11.
Trailing at half time 1 – 03 to 0 – 08, they overcame the point deficit finding the back of the net a further three times and found accuracy between the posts. A great team performance and everyone is now looking forward to the final on the 11/8 at Ruislip.
We would like to highlight a club members recent heroic efforts. Mick O’Beirne helped save a mother and young baby from a flat fire in North Harrow; the story featured in the Harrow Times recently. The fire brigade said his early intervention definitely helped save lives and the building. Mick, you are a credit to the community and the club is very proud of you.
