The latest news from the Thomas McCurtains GAA club

Thomas McCurtains’ hurling team secured the London Intermediate Championship title after a 4-12 to 1-13 victory over Fr. Murphy’s in the final at McGovern Park in Ruislip.

Dean Corrigan, Mark Russell, Jimmy Byrne and Connor Hogan all scored goals for the Goodmayes outfit on Sunday.

The hurling team were not the only McCurtains side celebrating after the men’s footballers won promotion to the AIB London League Division One.

The Goodmayes club beat Round Towers 4-9 to 0-15 in a play-off to go up, with Conor Murphy scoring a brace of goals, while Colm O’Neill and Niall Coffey also netted in the success.

While the current senior men’s football team are doing well, the future looks bright too as the under-15s were runners-up at the Gerry Beacom Cup in County Cavan.

The women’s football team were also in celebratory mood after beating Holloway Gaels 4-14 to 1-9 in their latest London Intermediate League encounter.
