St. Mellans Handball: Mono League. Beef may be a bad trade this weather but that wasn’t the case on Sunday evening as The Limousins defeated the Jerseys in the concluding night of the Mono League, first in was Christopher Meehan were he took on David O Reilly, David won this one 21-17, 21-10, next in was Kevin Treanor and Joe Kelly, this was a very tight affair as both shared games and points as both took a game each 21-13, 21-13, but the man that dealt the fatal blow was Barry Treanor as he rolled back the years and blew Aidan Keenan away on score line of 21-5, 21-3, this left the gap too big so the remaining two players of Ronan Boyle and John Treanor didn’t have to field, well done to The Limousins on their victory but well done to The Jerseys and all the other teams that made the league an enjoyable and a smooth running affair this season.
Adult Club Singles and Doubles. The Club Adult singles are well on the way so please ensure all games are played on the night and especially before the next game is due.
