Four share lead in hurling as Neasden top football in London

With inter-county action out of the way for another season, London clubs can finally knuckle down to focusing on the action in both Division 1 Senior Hurling and Football leagues, and the Championship.

We have a very competitive senior hurling league in progress in London at present, as after six rounds, four teams are tied at the top on 8 points each. 
Last year’s double league and championship winners, Kilburn Gaels lead on points difference with the early form team St Gabriels next, followed by Robert Emmets and Brothers Pearse – both win a game in hand. The other three teams in the competition, Granuaille, Fr Murphy’s and Sean Tracy’s lie at the bottom of the table on 2 points each. 
So it looks like anyone’s league title at this stage of the season.

Meanwhile, in the senior football league we have a clear leader with 2010 championship winner’s, Neasden Gaels on top after four rounds with 6 points. They had a comfortable win over Kingdom Kerry Gaels last weekend.
In second place is the impressive St Kierans on 5 points – with Parnells in third and Kerry Kingdom Gaels next – these two have a game in hand.
Defending champions Tir Chonail Gaels are on 2 points after two rounds and need a win in their next game this weekend when taking on ‘Kingdom. Round Towers after three rounds are also on 2 points but Tara, after playing four, are in trouble with only two points to their name so far. St Brendans with one loss from one game, bring up the rear on 2.

The senior football championship has yet to start but last Sunday saw the first round action in the hurling championship with impressive wins by ‘Emmets and Kilburn over Brothers Pearse and ‘Treacys respectively, while St Gabriels recorded a 9 points win over Fr Murphys.

Tomorrow Saturday in the hurling championship, we see all of the above in action once more with the first game of the day at Ruislip between St Gabriels and Kilburn a tantalising match-up.
