St.Mellans Handball Club
Adult County Doubles & Master Competitions.
Congratulations to Damien Mc Rory & John Mc Carron who won the “Novice A Doubles County Final” last Thursday where they defeated Michael & Robbie Duffy from Carrrickmacross in Carrrickmacross 21-13, 21-19, taking the first game with a commanding score the Carrick men responded very nearly forcing a tie-breaker but the Mellans pair held on to land the title, this capped a very successful year for both players within club & county, well done men, also on Thursday evening in St.Mellans the “Master’s A Singles” county final was played, there John Treanor took on Paul Cassidy, the first game was nip & tuck and could have went anyway but Paul pipped John to it 21-16, but the second game was all Paul’s as he ran away with it and landed the title 21-1, there just wasn’t enough charge in John’s battery to last the 2 games but still another got season John and well done Paul, that wraps up the season now on all fronts both young and old, well done to all the winners throughout the year but more importantly well done to all for taking part in the handball season.
Summer Social Play.
There will be some social “leisurely” play over the summer, starting on Mondays & Wednesdays from 7-8:30, then all will see when it goes after if it will turn into a league as it progresses.
Go raibh maith agat. That wraps up another busy handball season, the committee would like to thank everyone connected within and outside the club that keeps all aspects running along all year, again nothing would be possible without the continued support from all our
