Thomas McCurtains Hurling & Football Club Notes

November 09, 2016

Thomas McCurtains GAA Club Notes:

Congratulations to the Mens Footballers who have qualified for the Mularkey Cup Final after beating Dulwich Harps in Goodmayes on Saturday. The Hurlers are awaiting confirmation of the time and date for their McCullough Cup final. Please check the club Facebook and Twitter regularly for any details. 

Mens Football:

Result: Mullarkey Cup Semi-Final – Thomas McCurtains: 2-10, Dulwich Harps: 0-04.

The Mens Footballers had a comprehensive win over Dulwich Harps on Saturday in Goodmayes. Both teams played some nice football in the first half, but it was two Mark McGirr goals that proved the difference at the break leaving the score at 2-02 to 0-02 in favour of McCurtains. Playing with the wind in the second period the Macs took control of the game in the Dulwich half of the pitch. With fine performances from wing back Stephen Quinn and full forward Conor Murphy allied to the strong running of McGirr in midfield Dulwich couldn't handle the McCurtains attack while the ever steady rock, Jake Conway provided a master class in full back.

Congratulations to Dave Meade, Harry Corkerry, Tom Clarke and Shane Smyth on making the debuts for the club.
