BU13 Intercounties 2016 – Champions

(agillespie)
While a large number of the Leinster juniors were battling it out in the Leinster Junior Open, the Leinster BU13 team were on court in Pontefract playing in the finals of the Inter-Counties competition. Having made it through two qualifying weekends and finishing top of their group, this weekend was always going to be a tough challenge, with the team up against the best in the UK.

First up was Yorkshire in the semi-final. Although this county were the number 1 seeds, our team weren’t phased and put in huge efforts. The reward was a surprising 5/0 win and a place in the finals.

Sussex were their opponents in their last match of the competition and they proved to be a lot stronger. But when you have the newly crowned British Open champion and five other determined and driven players on your team there was only going to be one outcome.

Leinster managed a 3/2 win and were duly crowned the Inter-County champions.

Well done to

  • Denis Gilevskiy (Mount Pleasant)
  • Dylan Moran (Sutton LTC)
  • Jack O’Flynn (Mount Pleasant)
  • Sean Murphy (Mount Pleasant)
  • Elliot Kelly (Mount Pleasant)
  • Ed Gaffney (Sutton LTC)

Thanks and congratulations must also go to Dara O’Flynn for all the work he put in in researching, coaching and organising the team for the three weekend trips. Thanks also to the managers Donal Kelly and Rory Murphy.
