The Reserve side winning performances were temporarily halted when on Friday evening they faced Harlesden Harps and were unfortunate losers; final score 1-07 to 0-17. All eyes were on London on Sunday when they faced Leitrim and although the game saw plenty of opportunities, the dream result was not to be and lost narrowly by 3 points. A massive well done to Jarleth and Martin who both started and Greg who came on as a substitute in the second half. They played with tenacity and passion amongst a team who never gave up. It was a great day for the London GAA with a historic opening ceremony, a splendid new stand amongst other facilities alongside a fantastic new pitch. Congratulations to the board, officials and stewards on the day.
Training at Northwick Park for the Seniors is cancelled for this week only but continues as usual the following week from 7.30 – 9.00pm. Always happy to welcome new players to an established and sociable club. Please contact Senior Secretary Dennis Diggins on 07768352680. Lifts can be arranged.

Our U10’s attended a wonderful charity event in St Albans, ‘BuildforShea’, a family fun day and gaelic football was one of the many activities that took place. We wish Alan and Sharon (parents) all the best with their endeavours to raise funds to convert their home for Shea and the club is delighted to be making a donation. Congratulations to our players who played in the U17 Development Squad against Warwickshire in Ruislip in the McCarthy Cup, prior to the main game. London won by two points and the following players featured: Josh Obahor, Luke Horgan, Michael Walsh, Luke McHugh, Lewis Dickinson, Jojo Thabo and Niall Bradshaw. It was great to see so many of our young players at Ruislip enjoying the games and soaking up the atmosphere, hopefully a day they will remember for a long time to come. The U12’s will continue with another round this Saturday of their league at TCG. The club would also like to highlight our young U14 players who have recently been selected for the Feile Squad who are currently training very hard.
