Stars & Stripes U12 Autumn Tournament – Week 1

   A Good Start to U12 Stars and Stripes


A good start again to the U12 competition for Monkstown LTC and many thanks to all those who came along. As many of you know we moved the 5 girls and 2 boys listed below up to U14 to try and ensure that more players got matches. We only have 3 U14 girls so could accommodate more U12 girls at that level. We still have lots of boys – which is great – and we are trying to ensure that they all get good matches, but some of them will be friendlies. 

The children moving to U14 are:

Sarah Healy, Claire Doyle, Rosie McFadyen, Lucy Coulter Smith & Julie Ringrose and Oliver McGannon & Mark Foster

 Anyway, back to the matches – overall Monkstown LTC had a good 45 – 33 win against Shankill, but most importantly most of the matches were close with a good all around standard which is what we were hoping for. Congratulations to Conor, Tano, Philip & Sam who made their debut for the boys and to Suzanne & Nicole who made their debut for the girls. 



No 1 Conor Duddy & Ben McCarthy Won 8 – 5
No 2 Conor Mesa Sheehan & Tano Farro Won 11 – 2
No 3 Philip Bolger & Matthew McCarthy Won 8 – 5


Sam McGannon & Oliver Kennedy also won their friendly, so very well done to them


Boys result – Monkstown LTC 27 – Shankill 12



No 1 Anna Foster & Anna Schwer Lost 5 – 8
No 2 Suzanne Cullen & Niamh Doran Won 7 – 6
No 3 Eva Rose Melvin & Nicole O’Connell Lost 6 – 7


Sarah Sommerville & Anna Woodcock also won their friendly – well done girls!


Girls result: Monkstown LTC 18 – Shankill 21 


Overall: Monkstown LTC 45 – Shankill 33 


Well done to everyone and many thanks to Fionnuala for organising the boys and to Veronica for the girls. We are at home again next Saturday so best of luck to all again.
