Preliminary Championship GamesCongratulations to both our Senior and Junior teams on their fantastic wins in the opening rounds of their respective championships this weekend just gone. Despite the late notice of the games being moved from Greenford to Wormwood Scrubs, both teams turned up on the day and were glad to be returning to the pitch for the first time this season.

The Seniors were first up and kicked things off at 2pm with a hard fought 1 point win over last year’s Senior Championship winners and old rivals St Kiernans. Final score TCG 1-08 St Kiernans 1-07. The Junior team followed suit at 3.30pm in what was an open game against a tough Moindearg side who were playing their first game since relegation from Intermediate.
