Carlow Footballers celebrate a great win in London..



There was a sea of Red Yellow and Green in Mc Govern Park as Carlow got their National Football League season off to a flying start in Ruislip on Saturday 27th Jan with a 2-14 to 2-9 win over London.

It was a tight and exciting game all the way but Carlow’s commitment to build on last year’s Championship campaign showed through.

A goal from Eoghan Ruth in the first half and a follow up one by Man of the Match Jordan Morrissey in the second was enough to secure a 5 point victory.

London was a hard team to break down and Turlough O Brian admitted it was a difficult task at certain points in the game.

“We are short of a few of our backs through injury today and that showed against London’s attacking style.”

London is a strong side and I can see them having a good campaign this season and taking points from teams on route.

It was a hard fought for 2 points but a win is a win and today’s match has tought us some important lessons.

We had great support from the stand today and I’d like to thank all the Carlovians that travelled over as well as our emigrant friend’s here. It meant alot to see so many sporting our county colours.”
