TULLAMORE Squash Club held their finals of their Summer League last Thursday evening in the GAA Centre and it was a very close final with Team B winning by a single point.

Peter Dempsey Team D beat Rauf Musani 3-0. Shane Carroll, who subbed for Niall Tormey Team D beat Seamus Kane 3-1.

Things changed when Brian Daly Team B beat Michael Kinsella 3-0, Ishtiaq Zubairi, beat Breege Loftus 3-0 and Joe O’Brien beat Una Marsden 3-1.

However Marcus Walsh, who subbed for James Spollen Team D, turned the tables again by beating Daragh Kelly 3-0. This left Carthage Byrne Team B and Imelda Murray Team D. Imelda won the first two games effectively but Carthage upped the ante and came back at her to beat her 3-2 leaving the overall winners Team B. It was a very entertaining night and some great squash was played.

The highlight of the night was the draw for the racket. This incentive to players has proven to be very good as players are getting their matches played on time and putting their scores up. Seán McGlynn guessed the winning number for Julie Horgan who was present and therefore eligible to win the much sought after racket.

Imelda Murray, Club Captain thanked Patrick Martin outgoing League Fixtures Secretary who did a splendid job in running the Summer League. She also thanked Field Financial Services for their kind sponsorship.

As that draws the season to a close, there will be a sheet on the notice board for anyone who is interested in a friendly match. Please leave your name and number on the sheet if you want to continue playing throughout the summer.

Round Robin’s will be continuing on a Friday night and a sheet will be put up for this purpose also. Everybody is welcome so If you’re interested, put your name and no. on this sheet .

Tullamore Squash would like to thank all those players who helped with the social aspect last night, in particular, Breege Loftus and Geraldine Kelly.
