2009 Stars & Stripes U12 Autumn Tournament – Week 3

Monkstown LTC vs Elm Park

What a fightback! After a tough match against Newtown Park last week the Monkstown LTC team really came out of the traps well on Saturday to win all nine games against Elm Park and get within 4 points of Sandycove – making up 9 points on them on the day. I wasn’t there myself unfortunately but I hear Aoife Stokes and her briefcase had everything running like clockwork!!! The boys team 1-3 – David Cullen and Harry Crossan, David Keane and John O Mahony and Jack Stokes and Stephen Connolly won their matches 8-5, 9-4 and 7-6 respectively and the girls were wonderful!!

The teams of Siofra Watson and Lucy Byrne, Kate Doyle and Juliette O’Flynn (sorry for getting your surname wrong last time Juliette) and Caoimhe O Connor and Sophie de Patoul won their games 11-2, 11-2 and 10-3 respectively to give an overall result of Monkstown LTC 56 Elm Park 22 so really well played everyone.

The boys 4-6 team – Gary Galvin and Gary Kelly, Sean Desmond and Jack Hartnett and Patrick Byrne and Aaron Grogan also won their games 11-2, 7-6 and 9-4 respectively to complete a clean sweep.

Monkstown LTC now play Sandycove in Sandycove this Saturday in what looks like being the deciding match so please try and supply your children as we really need our best team out there on Saturday. It should be a great night so I would really encourage as much support as we can get!
