U21 Ulster Championships. A belated congratulations to club man Dermot Boyle on reaching the Ulster U21 singles final, a few weeks back Dermot played Killian O Reilly from Cavan it went to a nail biting tie-breaker, Dermot won the first 21-14 but lost the 2nd 13-21, but Dermot re-grouped and won 3rd game 21-20, so as the score line shows not much separated these players which will hopefully will stand to Dermot in the final, good luck Dermot.
Registration Fee. Can all players please ensure that they have paid their membership in full as you insurance runs out at the end of January and you will be “uninsured” from then onwards.
