Div 2

Belfast won this match 9 0 but I can assure you all the score line
Does not reflect the play with two of the matches going to five sets six of the sets going to 10 each and over all it was a super match with great rallies and our players fought very hard but it just wasn’t to be.
Result Leinster 0 Belfast 9 congrats to Belfast

Well done to Belfast on winning the division with Gerry Wickham the only Leinster player to win in five sets and John Keogh just losing out to his opponent 15-17 in the fifth and Brian Kestell just losing out in four sets in two of his matches and again the players done us proud.
Result Leinster 1 Belfast 8

To conclude may I complaint all the players on playing so well giving us all and a very enjoyable match to watch. On behalf of the Leinster League committee and all the players I would like to congratulate Belfast on winning the three divisions and been such gracious hosts.

Roll on next year
Yours in sport
