Holloway Gaels 20th Anniversary
1993 - 2013
Ann Dunning Memorial Tournament March 2013
The annual Ann Dunning memorial tournament held on Saturday the 2nd of March, was once again a superb day of football all round. Six teams braved the freezing conditions to compete for the Ann Dunning memorial cup and shield with some tightly fought contests. Holloway Gaels Teams 1, 2 and 3, Dulwich Harps, Tir Chonaill Gaels and Kingdom Kerry Gaels all put on some show stopping displays of football despite it been the first tournament of the 2013 season.
The final of the Ann Dunning memorial cup saw Holloway Gaels team 1 , who remained unbeaten throughout the competition take on the skillfull Tir Chonaill Gaels side. This was a tightly fought contest with Tir Chonaill Gaels firing home some fine goals to put them ahead in the first half. However the second half was to be one dominated by the skillfull Holloway Gaels side who at the final whistle came out deserved winners. Final score: 4-03 to 2-02.
The final of the Ann Dunning memorial shield saw Dulwich Harps take on Holloway Gaels team 2 in what was a tightly fought contest to the very final whistle. Dulwich Harps hit the back of the net first with some fine goals from the South London side. Holloway Gaels soon replied, hitting the back of the net with some fine displays of football. At the final whistle, Dulwich Harps came out triumphant winning by one point. Final score: 4-03 to 4-02.
Holloway Gaels would like to sincerely thank everybody who helped organised this wonderful event in memory of Ann Dunning, the referees, all the fantastic teams who took part, Tir Chonaill Gaels for the use of their pitches for the day and the club house in Greenford for putting on the food. This is a tournament which we, at Holloway Gaels hold very closely to our hearts and we hope that its success will continue for many more years to come.
