Easter Well Wishes

The Club would like to wish all members a very Happy Easter. We hope you all enjoy your break however you will be spending it.

Result – TCG Juniors 1-08 St Clarets 0-03The Junior Team continued the defence of The McCardle Cup on a scorching hot day in Greenford on Sunday afternoon, this time taking on old rivals St Clarets in a repeat of last season’s championship Semi-Final.

The Gales team had the grace of the wind in the first half and started strongly to go 3 points up within the first 10 minutes. They continued their strong play down the middle, and a following some good work from the forwards, a break from Liam Cunningham saw him rattle the onion bag with a fine effort to register the only goal of the game. A further 3 points before half time left the score at 1-06 to 0-0 at the interval.

A change in personnel at half time from St Clarets saw them begin the 2nd half strongly as they got the first 2 points of the half. The Midfield duo of Conor McCarthy and Ewan Vassallo had their work cut out trying to field the ball against a very strong wind, but the young guns persevered and were rewarded midway through the 2nd half as Patrick Flynn pointed from a tight angle for the first Gales score of the half. Strong play from the Gales defence restricted St Clarets to only 1 more point which was then cancelled out by a Donal Geraghty free. This proved to be the last action of the day as the Gales ran out deserved winners.

Final score - TCG Juniors 1-08 St Clarets 0-03.

Team on the day was as follows:
Kieran Cunningham, Brendan Rice, Jack Elliott, Aidan McGarvey, Oli Hayes, David Kennedy, Ryan Kearney, Conor McCarthy, Ewan Vassallo, Liam Cunningham, Brendan Scannell, Donal Geraghty, Mark Woods, Antonio Pisano, Rory Jennings

SUBS: Patrick Flynn for Mark Woods, Francis McGinley for Conor McCarthy, Calum Crowley for Liam Cunningham.
