Harlesden Harps club notes

July 08, 2019

Upcoming fixtures:

Harlesden Harps will play the next round of their AIB Division 2 League campaign against St Brendans this coming Thursday 11th July at 7:15pm, at Wormwood Scrubs, Artillery Lane (Off Du Cane Road), London, W12 0DF, referee: Ger O’Shea. As usual, make sure you check public transport is in use and for any likely traffic delays, etc and ensure everyone is at the venue nice and early for a proper preparation for the game. Let’s go all out to get our first league win of the season.

Previous Matches:

A tough week for the team with two losses recently in their very competitive league group. First up it was Round Towers on a warm Thursday evening. Unfortunately, a number of regulars were unavailable for the fixture which stretched the depth of a small panel and after the concession of a couple of soft Towers goals it was always going to be tough to respond without some of the more battle-hardened team members playing. This proved to be the case as the greater fitness of Towers told and saw them home to victory.

Then on Sunday it was back to Greenford to play the TCG Juniors. Again, a couple of soft early goals were to be the downfall for the Harps. Although they battled gamely throughout and kicked some fine points they could never quite gain parity with the Gaels who ran out winners on a final scoreline of TCG Juniors 2-13 Harps 0-16.


Training continues this week taking place on Tuesday evening, at 7:45pm in The Shamrock Club, 307A Horn Lane, Acton, W3 0BP (nearest tube station: North Acton on the Central Line). Any new players wishing to "play a bit a ball" are very welcome to come along to this well-run club. If needed we can offer good jobs, along with accommodation and a social life to our members. Transport to and from training and pick up from local stations can also be arranged.
