As part of their preparations for the Connaught Championship New York traveled to Canton Massachusetts on a cold raw April day to take on a Boston selection. New York management will have been satisfied with the end result, a ten point victory, however, there were spells in the game where Boston enjoyed a decent amount of possession and if a few more finishers had been in the front six, the home team would have been much closer to their opponents on the scoreboard. On the whole, however, New York’s superior fitness and sharpness winning the ball were clearly evident. New York midfielder Pat Madden was the best player on show, while Robbie Tasker and Dan Doona carried the forward line for the visitors.

|Boston Selection who faced New York Saturday.|
The New Yorkers will certainly face a much tougher task on May first against Roscommon. The run out Saturday will have done them no harm, and the side look fit. The Boston side worked hard and played well for periods, and were worthy representatives of the Divison. Best of luck to New York in two weeks.
