Just to re cap on last week’s action which saw all age groups up to U14 playing. Saturday 10/6, saw sunshine and plenty of football at the Go Games blitz hosted by Gael Londain in Sunbury-on-Thames. A marvellous blitz, compliments to the hospitality of the hosts, where all teams played fantastically and also saw the U12 Boys secure their first silverware winning a cup v Warwickshire with a final score of 3-04 to 1-02. The U12 Girls also did equally as well winning the Shield and beat St Kiernan’s in their final, solid teamwork with contributions from everyone on the field and outstanding displays of good quality football. The U14’s played Tara in the first League final of the season. These two teams always enjoy competitive games and this one was no different. The first half was closely contested and both sides were drawing at half time. However, Tara hit a purple patch hitting the back of the net in the final quarter. They were very clinical and made the most of their scoring opportunities. Congratulations to Tara GFC who won by 8-09 to 3-09.
On a beautiful Friday evening in East Lane, Sudbury, the U12’s took on Dulwich Harps in the League Semi-Final of Pool A. To get to this stage was a great achievement, all the clubs in Pool A have had some terrific games during the season. This was to be no different. The boys started off really well and led for most of the first half. Unfortunately Dulwich Harps finished the stronger team and Parnells lost by 2 points: 1-01 to 0-06. Dulwich met Tara in the final and coincidently beat them by 2 points as well. Congratulations to everyone involved.
The reserve game for the men against KKG is to be re arranged and this week the Senior team face NLS in the first Conway Cup game on the 20/6 at Northwick Park 7.15pm.

Good luck to London who face Carlow this weekend at McGovern Park, Ruislip.
The club would like to extend its deepest sympathies to all those families and the communities recently effected by the tragic fire and associated events which unfolded at Grenfell Tower in West London. Our thoughts and prayers are with them all. Trish O’Connor (club member) has been instrumental in enlisting support from club members, her friends and family in collecting and sorting out donations from the Harrow area. A fantastic gesture and to be commended.
