Tir Chonaill Gaels – St Kiernans Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 09:30

Hes been my player of the year for us. Hes an English-born lad in his early 20s and has set the standard for us. Im sure St Kiernans will be keeping an eye on him. Ive been really impressed with Liam Gavigan for us this season. Its going to be a good day for London football, he told The Irish Post.

This appeared to be the catalyst that the Gaels needed however, and a surging run through the middle of the pitch from captain Liam Gavaghan saw him send the ball over the bar after good link up play with Ryan Elliott.

We all know each other, pretty much, and we all have massive respect for each others abilities. I grew up with a couple of guys on their team Mark Gottsche and John McGrath, who I went to school with and played football with most of my life.

The lads gave it their all and fought it out until the bitter end but McCurtains proved too tough of an opponent on the day. Our Intermediates fell short at the final hurdle on Sunday narrowly losing out to Thomas McCurtains in the Championship final on a score line of 0-10 to 0-7.

Then came the first goal which saw the game spring into life. St Kiernans talisman Adrian Moyles kicked a free from 25 yards out which rebounded high off the upright to land in the small square, but unfortunately for the Gaels defence it was the Kiernans full forward line who pounced quickest to palm the ball into the net and register the maximum.

In what was a repeat of last years championship decider, it was the current champions St Kiernans that came out of the starting blocks the brightest to register the first score of the game after 2 minutes. Tir Chonaill Gaels went into battle with old rivals St Kiernans on a lovely Sunday afternoon at the new McGovern Park in Ruislip.

However, luckily in Killian Butler and Ryan Elliot, the Gaels had 2 go to men to help get them out of jail. Firstly, Butler responded with a lovely score from a tight angle when under pressure. Next, Elliott pointed following a turnover ball from a poor Kiernans kick out which meant the difference between the teams was back to the minimum once more at the mid-way point of the second half. Then came another 2 pointed frees from the boot of Adrian Moyles, as the Gaels ill-discipline in defence was continually being punished by St Kiernans.

Well done to the lads, their management and all the background team on a fantastic season. The lads gave it their all and fought it out until the bitter end but McCurtains proved too tough of an opponent on the day. Results Our Intermediates fell short at the final hurdle on Sunday narrowly losing out to Thomas McCurtains in the Championship final on a score line of 0-10 to 0-7.

The 2 teams once again traded frees before TCG got their first goal of the game with their final play right on the stroke of half time. Kiernans managed to respond themselves thanks to a free and a point from their midfielder James Moran, who frustratingly blazed over the bar when he had been put clean through on goal. Killian Butler was the beneficiary of some great pressure and work rate from the Gaels who turned the ball over just inside the Kiernans half and when Marc Gottsche laid it off to the on-running Butler, he finished low into the bottom corner past the keeper.

TCG U14 Girls played Taras in a thrilling match with scores galore by both teams. Highest scoring game of any league game this year.
