Fulham Irish pounce late to land first title

FULHAM IRISH are champions of London for the first time in their history after a stunning late show against Parnells at Ruislip.

Having been fortunate to lead at the interval through a Harry Murphy penalty, Fulham then failed to score for 26 second-half minutes and when Parnells forward David O’Sullivan converted his sixth free of the day, a replay looked on the cards.

However, the inspirational Lorcan Mulvey then led a late Fulham rally, scoring off a swift counter-attack, before three injury-time points sealed victory.
