Harlesden Harps GFC Club Notes
May 11, 2016
Harlesden Harps will play their next game in the AIB Division 2 League this Saturday 14th of May against CuChulainns. Throw in for the game is at 5:00pm. Hopefully a win can now be got after last weeks exciting draw (see below). In order to have a proper warm up and preperation, aim to get to Mill Hill (NW7 2EL) in plenty of time, ideally to cheer on your clubmates in the previous Reserve game fixture (see below).
The team played Garryowen last Saturday in their opening game in the AIB Division 2 League. With some fine football being played by both sides and never much separating each it was almost destined to end in a draw. A five goal thriller of Harps 2-07 Garryowen 3-04 saw both teams get their first point on the board. Much to ponder for the next game for both.
Harlesden Harps also played the Championship Preliminary Round game recently against St Josephs. As usual between these two close rivals a close contest ensued. The game could have swung either way with the Joeâs just getting the better in this game on a scoreline of 1-07 0-09. Itâs highly likely thereâll be another battle between both teams before the end of the season.
After a break of a number of years Harlesden Harps will proudly enter a team in Reserve football competitions for 2016. This will allow a greater involvement for more players and makes it an exciting time for the club.
The teams first competitive fixture is this coming Saturday 14th of May against Parnells in the AIB Reserve Football League. Throw in for the game is at 3:30pm. In order to have a proper warm up and preperation, aim to get to Mill Hill (NW7 2EL) in plenty of time. Letâs hope for a big turnout and a winning start to the competition for the team.
