S.S. Lazio Calcio Gaelico v Azur Gaels

This encounter took place in view of a twinning between our two clubs, to be concluded on the 29th October when Lazio come to meet us on the Côte d’Azur.

The match coincided with the first anniversary of the first ever Azur Gaels training session – which involved two guys, a ball, two poplar trees for posts and a bin for a goalkeeper.

This was a competitive, exciting game played with utmost respect on both sides, finishing (6-10) : (4-5) in Lazio’s favour.
