Harlesden Harps Club Notes 19th March20-03-2018


Upcoming Fixture: 

Harlesden Harps play their opening match of the 2018 season when they take on Neasden Gaels this weekend in the Intermediate Championship preliminary round. The game will take place on Sunday, 25th March at 3:30pm at Greenford, pitch two, London, UB6 0NZ. As ever, 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. Let’s start the year off well as the Harps will hope to go one step further in 2018 than last years journey.

Training: 

For now, training (on a 3G pitch) is every Thursday at 7:45pm in The Pavilion, Hillside, Stonebridge, NW10 8LW. The venue is a short walk from Harlesden Tube Station. Any new players wishing to "play a bit a ball" are very welcome to come along to this well-run club. If needed we can offer good jobs, along with accommodation and a social life to our members. Transport to and from training and pick up from local stations can also be arranged.

As usual, check public transport is in use and for any likely traffic delays, etc and make sure everyone is at the venue nice and early for a proper preparation.

 

Martin O Sullivan: 

As most of you will have heard club stalwart, Martin O Sullivan, suffered significant injuries in a car crash last August in Co Louth. Martin is recovering well from his injuries with some nice pieces recently about him in various newspapers: http://www.theirishworld.com/inspiring-gaelic-footballers-unbreakable-spirit/
