Harlesden Harps GFC Club Notes
April 14, 2016
Harlesden Harps will play the final of the Murphy Cup this Saturday 16th of April against St Josephs. Throw in for the game is at 5:00pm, with extra time being played if needed. Hopefully the winning momentum will be kept up, with the added carrot of the first piece of silverware of the new season at stake. In order to have a proper warm up and preperation, aim to get to Ruislip in plenty of time.
Harlesden Harps continued their Murphy Cup campaign with a convincing 1-13 1-07 semi-final win over Cuchulainns in Ruislip last Saturday. Playing with the wind in the first half the Harps displayed some fine point taking to take a six point lead into the break. Although the CÃºâs dragged themselves back into the contest with a goal early in the second half, the men in green dug deep and some outstanding defensive displays saw them never fall behind. Captain, Robert Reid, put the seal on victory with a late goal and send Harps through to the first final of the season. Letâs hope they keep this winning form going for their next game in the final against St Josephs (see above).
For current players training continues every Thursday at 7:45pm in The Shamrock Club, 307A Horn Lane, Acton, W3 0BP (nearest tube station: North Acton on the Central Line).
