A Summary of the Men’s 3rd Team, Class 6 Winter League Quarter Finals

(11 Mar 2020)

Well, it wasn’t to be. Elm Park 4th team fell at the 7th fence against Co. Wicklow LTC in the Winter League race. We will just have to be content with promotion and conduct an FAI-type review into the captaincy. Yours truly, the captain, failed to deliver the winning point on Sunday and will now enter into a reflective sporting period of self-isolation.

On a more positive note, the team and squad have done very well to battle through the group stages unbeaten despite plenty of injuries and squad depletions. On Sunday, in a windy Bray, it looked like Dylan Fitzgibbon and Terry McWade were on course for an impressive 3 set win at 2nd Doubles with a 3-0 final set lead. Unfortunately, our super-solid 3rd pairing of John Purcell and Frank Dennehy met a strong Wicklow combination and didn’t recover from a painful tie-break loss in the first set. The pain didn’t end there; our top doubles, welcoming the return of Greg Duffy from injury, might have won on other days but lost two tight sets and can only dream of what might have been.
We will battle on, look forward to a Summer League campaign and also give thanks to our great squad, super subs, supportive league team captains and loyal Elm Park supporters. We will get back on this EP horse.
Gary Mc Carthy , Captain Elm Park 3rd  Team, Class 6
