Kilburn Gaels hurling team were crowned London Senior Championship winners after beating Robert Emmets 1-16 to 0-14 in the final on Sunday.

The two sides met at McGovern Park in Ruislip, with Emmets chasing a third successive crown.

However, Gaels began brightly and scored four unanswered points in the opening 11 minutes, before Emmets managed to finally bisect the posts.

The sides then spent the next period exchanging scores, before Kilburn signalled their intent with a fine run shortly before the break.

A goal and a point for Gaels in the minutes leading up to half time ensured they took a five-point lead into the interval.

Midway through the second half, Kilburn hit two points in quick succession to lead by eight going into the final 20 minutes.

Emmets rallied a little towards the end of the match, but could only haul the gap back to five as Gales won.
