Harlesden Harps

Next Matches:
Harlesden Harps continue their league campaign when they take on Moindearg in their next game, referee Kevin Flaherty. The match will take place this Thursday, 04th July at 7:15pm at Wormwood Scrubs, Artillery Lane (Off Du Cane Road), London, W12 0DF. As usual, make sure you check public transport is in use and for any likely traffic delays, etc and ensure everyone is at the venue nice and early for a proper preparation for the game and let’s keep our unbeaten start to their league going.

Previous Matches:
In the warm sunshine of Reading Harlesden Harps continued their league campaign with a tough, hard-fought victory over the hosts St Anthonys. Fitness levels were tested to the maximum during the game but with our shooting much improved from our previous game the scoreboard was kept ticking over. Padraig McGoldrick with his accuracy from frees was top scorer for the team but it was three goals which ultimately settled the game in our favour. Eoghan Bonnar continued his goal a game streak with a tidy finish, Ben O Mahoney and Ciaran Houlihan with a rare goal saw us victorious on a final scoreline of Harps 3-12 St Anthonys 1-11. A great win on the road, roll on the next game.

Training continues this week taking place Monday only at 7:30pm in The Shamrock Club, 307A Horn Lane, Acton, W3 0BP (nearest tube station: North Acton on the Central Line).

Parnells GFC would like to congratulate Tom Farrell on his recent Sean Gael Award. Involved with us and London GAA for over 50 years and still actively supporting and organising in the club, his award is thoroughly deserved. They don’t make them like Tom anymore!

The Senior Men unfortunately lost both League games this last week. However, it’s great to see so many of our Youth players who have come through making the first team and playing Senior level football. All credit to them.

Parnells U18 girls had a double header v St Clarets resulting in one win each. The U11’s participated in their last Blitz of the season held by Taras and showed that the transition to this age group has led to some great strides in their development. They will be hungry to play in the forthcoming ABC. This week the U17’s will face Dulwich Harps in the League (4/7/18 7.00pm at Northwick Park) and prior to that the U15’s are set to meet St Kiernan’s in the Championship semi-final (4.7.18 7.00pm at Montrose Park re-scheduled game). Good luck to all the players and coaches involved.

Surely the highlight of the weekend was the success of the London Feile teams winning titles galore! Well done to everyone that was there and particularly those Parnells players representing their county. Your hard work and dedication has paid off. Unfortunately Luke Keane injured his arm shortly after scoring a goal in the final. We wish him a speedy recovery.

The Club is busy organising its tournament for the 8th July for the U12 age group in memory of Conrad Ryan, Nora Togher and Gerry Somers; taking place at Harrow Rugby Club from 11.00am. Football, BBQ, music, family fun, games and activities. The club welcomes friends and families to come along and enjoy a Sunday Funday! Details available on the website and via London Youth GAA.

Finally, good luck to Mark White (U17 Manager/father to Conal) who is taking part in the ROKCC this weekend. To support Mark’s charity, please see link on the website. Kevin Keegan (father to James) is also making the trip. We wish them well.
