 Dates for Go Games for U8/10 Football

Dates for Go Games for U12 Football

Report for U14 Football Championship finalDulwich Harps completed the Double, League & Championship, with an emphatic victory against Tara in the Championship final against Tara. This was an eagerly awaited fixture with Tara being crowned the All Britain Champions at the recent ABC Championships and Dulwich Harps having won the London League title. Dulwich fielded fourteen players that had helped South London win the Division 4 All Ireland title at the Feile Peil na nOg Competition in June. Both teams deserve credit for their efforts to play quality football on a very wet pitch; though Dulwich held the upper hand throughout the game the Tara team must be commended for their gallant efforts.  At the end of the game, the Championship Trophy was presented to the Dulwich captain Ben Kudehinbu by the Chair of the London Youth Board, Tony Griffin. Ben Kudehinbu congratulated the Tara Team, the match referee, Charlie Egan and the coaches of the Dulwich team, Michael Donnelly and Brian Smyth . This has been an outstanding season for Dulwich Harps and the players have expressed their gratitude to the backroom team of Tom Denning, Anne McLoone and Martin Kane. Their fundraising strategy enabled the U14 team to spend a week in Ireland in May and this tour certainly helped to galvanise the team. All of our teams have benefitted from the excellent coaching they have received and we are very grateful for the support from Michael Donnelly, Martin McGrath, Michael Maher, Brian Smyth, Niall McCann, Dan McCusker and Peter Murphy.


The Conrad Ryan cup competition will now take place at Parnell's, Northwick Park on Saturday the 5th October with a 12 noon start. Teams participating are Parnell's, Tara's, TCG's and St Kiernan's for the U14's age group this year.
