Our Reserve team have had 2 recent fixtures vs Round Towers and St Kiernans. Despite putting in two very competitive performances, the team didn’t manage to salvage a result on either occasion. Both performances were very encouraging however, with lots of new recruits on show which bodes well for the future.
Our Intermediate team have also had two league outings recently. Firstly on Thursday 4th July, they traveled to Northwick Park to play Parnells. On a very humid evening, the lads lost out by a point 1-11 to 1-10. Eire Og trailed by 6 points with 10 minutes left and despite a palmed goal by Ger Crowley, they couldn’t get back on level terms.
On Sunday 7th July, the lads made amends for the disappointing midweek performance with a comfortable victory over Wandsworth Gaels. The first half was a very tight affair with John Coyle’s frees keeping Eire Og in the contest. The North London side increased the intensity of the game in the second half with Darragh Cotter and the returning Sean Brennan having particularly good games. Goals from John Coyle and Tony Rogan put the game beyond doubt with Eire Og running out 2-15 to 0-7 winners. Next up for the intermediate team is a game vs Tara which is a must win fixture in the race for a semi final berth.
