Gaelic Football is a form of football played mainly in Ireland where, although a strictly amateur pursuit, it is the most popular sport in terms of both playing numbers and attendance levels. Played correctly, it is a fast, hard game requiring a combination of skills incorporating kicking, catching, running, tackling and hand-passing. Teams of 11 or 15 players attack H-shaped goal posts, with one point awarded for kicking or punching the ball between the posts and over the crossbar and a goal worth three points awarded for getting the ball under the bar and into the net.
Gibraltars very own gaelic football team “The Gibraltar Gaels” recorded their second straight victory of the season with a hard earned victory over reigning Iberian champions – Seville. The match was fiercely competitive with both sides leaving nothing on the field, and both battling hard until the final whistle. Gibraltar’s superior fitness won through in the end and the victory now leaves them top of the Andalucian league. It’s an impressive milestone for the team considering the club is in its infancy, only formed 12 months ago. The club now faces Marbella in the final game before the christmas break, victory would solidify their place as league leaders.
The club trains every Wednesday at 8.30 on the municipal pitches in La Linea.
