Boys u13 2015 - Results

The finals of the boys u13 schools squash was held at Sutton Lawn Tennis Club on 27/2/2015. This competition was held to decide the boys  team at u13 which will represent Leinster in the upcoming All Ireland Schools Final day to be held on 17th April 2015.

There was an entry of ten teams. All teams were from the Dublin area with a good mix of Southside and Northside involved. St Michaels  Josh Brown, Ben Kennedy and John Finnian came back to Sutton as holders of the league title won inj  December 2014 and put up a brave battle but were beaten finalists. St Fintans A team proved too strong on the day and so this team comprised of Alex Smith, Dylan Moran and Jake Kieran  will do battle in April to represent their province.

 

Congratulations to all involved and thanks to all the parents who came along to support and help out on the day.

IMG_1275Thanks for a fantastic day of Squash. There was a total of 19 teams playing in 6 sections, Boys U/13, U/15, U/17, U/19 Girls U/15 & U/17 with a total of 72 match played from 9.00 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.

Sutton LTC hosted the event and we would like to thank them for giving the use of their club at such short notice.

It was a pleasure to run the All Ireland Squash Schools Final once again and all schools should be very proud of their students behaviour and sportsmanship both on and off court.

It was great to see so many new faces alongside the well known players and we would hope that they are encouraged to progress to play in more events throughout Ireland in the future.

Thanks to the teachers and parents for their help and patients and congratulations to all the prize winners.

Regards, Eoin & Suzanne Ryan
