Irish Girls in Fine Form at Stockton 4*

Edel O’Reilly

Last weekend saw a young Irish squad travel to England for the Stockton Junior 4 Star tournament. Highlights of the vent for the Irish included a gold for the Cadet Girls in the Team event, Ashley Givan and Edel O’Reilly combining well to defeat the Colin Deaton club of Derbyshire by 3 sets to 1. In the Singles event, O’Reilly was in superb battling form, winning a number of tight matches including a great win over Yolanda King(English No.5) to progress to the semi-finals. Givan also made the semi-final of the main event as well as clinching victory in the Grade 1 cadet singles. Katie McGlone capped off a fine weekend for the girls making the semi-finals of the Under 12s.

The team was coached by Shay Logue – full report to follow tomorrow.
