#192 London on the up

While last weekend brought mixed results for London’s footballers and hurlers, the overall picture for the Metropolitan teams in this year’s Allianz leagues looks rather positive.
On Saturday, London footballers welcomed Roscommon to Ruislip for their Division 4 second round clash and though the Connacht champions took the spoils and looked to have an easy time of it judging by the final score 17 (1-14) to 7 (0-07), they still were tested. London had been well in the game and only trailed by 3 at the break and though Roscommon pushed on, the goal only arrived in injury time.
Meanwhile on Sunday, the London hurlers took on rivals Meath and were hoping to reverse their 5 point league defeat to the Royal county at the corresponding fixture last year.
Their wishes came true as that is exactly what they did when recording an impressive 16 (1-13) 11 (1-08) victory over the recent Kehoe Cup winners.
Here to tell us about that game and the football is London GAA Chairman, Tommy Harrell.
