Liathroid Laimhe: Adult Club Doubles. The Coalisland Fireplaces Doubles Final was
played two Friday evenings past (April 6th) where Fergal O Neill & John Treanor were
pitted against Eamonn Todd & Kevin Treanor, this turned out to be a marathon games
where it went to a tie-breaker game, Eamonn & Kevin took the first 21-14 and probably
feeling confident going into the 2nd to claim the crown but Fergal & John had other
ideas as they re-grouped and took control of the game and took it 21-17, batteries
might have been getting low but back into the arena one more time was called for
and this also proved another marathon game and it went almost all the way again as
Fergal & John won it and the title 21-18, with a total of 49 serves in and out the
boys definitely slept that night, The High House Doubles Final was played last Thursday
night the 12th, Gary Treanor & Fergal Rafferty played Dermot Boyle & Ronan Boyle,
Fergal served first and lead 2-0 where the Boyle Bros took control and went into
a 12-6 lead before Fergal served 9 unanswered points and after Gary served his last
they lead 15-12, after a time out from the Boyles they tried to eat into the other
boys advantage but after another few exchanges Gary & Fergal won it 21-15, the 2nd
game had a kind of the same sort of exchange pattern throughout as neither team would
give much in the tussle but Gary & Fergal had just that bit more in the tank and
won the game and last ever High House title 21-15 again, well done to all that played
and also a big thanks to all that played in both sets of doubles that kept the championships
games moving along smoothly as the games were fixed.
Juvenile Nationals. Saturday past the club played host to some of the Irish Juvenile
Nationals, we hosted the U11 girls and 2 groups of the U11 boys groups and the U15
girls section, play started at 9:40am and the last game finished at 6:45pm with no
breaks at all in either alleys, with everybody putting their shoulder to the wheel
it was a very successful days handball and all that helped out anyway on the day
must be commended, we got 2 young men entered into the U11 groups at the last minute,
Donnacha Mc Cluskey played in group 1 and Luke Mc Kenna in group 2, both boys give
a very good account of themselves and proved yet again that they are not far away
from the top in the game, both boys played players from Tyrone, Meath, Loais, Kilkenny,
Clare and Cork, Donnacha played early in group 1 and the only player to win all his
games was Tyrone and Donnacha ran him very close only to loose 18-15 and would have
won only for serving some bad serves in that particular game, Luke won 4 out of his
5 games only to be beaten by a very strong Clare player 21-16, these sort of results
show that if the effort is put in we have some young and up coming players that will
be able to contest throughout the country, as spectators left they were very complimentary
of how they were treated throughout the whole day on all fronts and how accommodating
everyone was, and also they paid particular thanks towards the refreshments severed
throughout the day and that brings me onto thanking AnnaRose Mc Clave and Ann Cassidy
who were there to serve up the food, and yet again it did not disappoint, from early
morning til late evening food was being served, again thanks very much ladies, you
both done the club proud.
Juvenile Leagues. Our Tuesday night boys played their league and shield finals last
week, in the U13-15 League final Mark Cassidy defeated Peter Treanor, this was a
tight game throughout and almost went to a tie-breaker, well done Mark, the Shield
Final was between Aaron Cassidy & John Treanor, Aaron just had too much in the tank
for John on the night as John tired in the 2nd game and couldn’t recover, so all
in all it was a good night for the Cassidy’s as both took home the silverware, a
big well done to all who took part and as usual a big thanks to all coaches that
help out with the juveniles throughout the year.
Juvenile Coaching. As we enter the football season the coaches will be winding up
their coaching and league for this season, but we do encourage all players to try
and keep in touch with the game throughout the year if at all possible, even though
there will be no set coaching or training in place we do ask that on a wet evening
of what there will be plenty no doubt during the year to ring a friend and go down
for a game, it is surprising how a small game once a week will keep you in shape
for the new season in the Autumn time.
