By Hal LaRoux Updated

Kerril Burke at age 74 must be in with a chance of being the oldest goalscorer in the history of the game..

ST GABRIELS have unearthed an exciting new prospect ahead the summer’s championship.

The club’s intermediate team were 2-10 to 2-7 winners over Thomas McCurtains in Goodmayes on Sunday in Division Two of the London Hurling League, with corner-forward Kerril Burke pouncing to grab the winning goal late in the game.

But Burke is no up-and-coming youngster. At 74 years of age, the St Gabriels chairman already has six London SHC titles under his belt from his playing days.
