Lack of games played in Yorkshire this year very worrying. Could do with a big push in places like Sheffield, Hull etc and get teams started where there bound to be lots of Irish lads.

Both Hull and Sheffield have university teams, so there must be a nucleus of Irish lads in both areas. Could be a start?

That's how Newcastle started I believe. I'm sure there's plenty of lads hanging around after uni for a few years in those places.

St. Benedicts Harps 0-08 Cu Chulainns 1-10.
The Newcastle team remain unbeaten in the Yorkshire Senior Championship following their second win in a row over Leeds based St. Benedicts by four points at Beeston, Leeds on Sunday. The game was played in perfect weather and a large crowd gathered to watch. This was the first competitive game in two months for St. Benedicts and the second for Cu Chulainns although there were no signs of rustiness from either. Cu Chulainns opened the scoring with a point only to be pegged back with a point from Paul Curran for St. Benedicts. Points were swapped regularly with St. Benedicts ending the first half 6 points to 5 ahead. The half was marred by the sending off of the St. Benedicts full-forward, Eddie Stapleton for an alleged "raised arm". Stapleton had been causing all sorts of havoc in the Cu Chulainns full-back line along with Paul Curran and Chris McNerlin and the red card certainly had a real effect on the game. Indeed, Eddie had taken two great points while under extreme pressure. Andy Mullan also scored two points in the half. The second half saw a different game as Cu Chulainns gained the upper hand through excellent use of the spare man although they were wasteful in front of goal. St. Benedicts opened the scoring in that second half through Paul Curran and if they could just gain and keep possession, thoughts of winning their first Championship were entering heads on the side-lines especially when Ryan Donnelly knocked over an awkward free from wide on the right to go two up. However, Cu Chulainns found their scoring touch and went two points ahead with about 10 minutes to go when the referee, Anthony McLaughlin, showed a red card to another St. Benedicts player, midfielder, Rory Scullion. Whatever chance St. Benedicts had before this, there was none now. Cu Chulainns then scored a goal and a point, as the two man advantage proved too much for St. Benedicts, to close out the game. Cu Chulainns now go on to represent Yorkshire in the All-Britain against the eventual winners of Warwickshire on Sunday week in Birmingham.
