Yorkshire geared up for thrilling title race

By Lee Gormley.

The Yorkshire Senior Gaelic Football Championship starts next weekend with four teams set to compete for the highly coveted crown – reigning champions from Newcastle Cuchulainns GAC, this year’s Senior League champions St Benedict’s Harps from Leeds, Huddersfield based team Brothers Pearse and this year’s Padraig Kenning Cup winners Hugh O’Neill’s, also from Leeds.

The competiveness of the event is anticipated to be at its best ever with all four teams having a strong squad of players to challenge with.

The current holders of the championship trophy, Cuchulainns, have won the competition for the past five years – an incredible achievement and a record which they hope to continue in 2013.

The clubs secretary Stephen McKenna said: “We’re looking forward to it. The whole squad has been training hard all year, but recently you can tell the championship is just around the corner. The boys have doubled their efforts and are raring to go.”
