Rover 60 Round-up.
‘Tom Tops Table’
Tom Dwyer had to beat table topper Mick Slattery and remain unbeaten in the final league series to edge ahead of the afore- mentioned Mick, closely followed by Gerry Lawlor, to capture the Premier League section crown.
Division 2 was also keenly contested and resulted in Kieran O’Mara regaining top flight status with Joe Walsh for company.
Intrepid Pedro’s Revenge
Division 3 battler Paddy Fagan deservedly gains promotion with intrepid traveller Pedro Gillett who still burns from the humiliation of relegation earlier in the year. No keeping him downunder.
With the highest points total for the final series, Division 4’s Terry Donaghue( 14 pts) begins to climb to his more usual levels in the company of Phil Dranse.
Is there a prize for “best dressed” asks Des Leech. Yes, but we gave it to Larry Keane because the skirt was too long for you. We couldn’t prevent Des and Jim O’Neill shooting up from Division 5. Is that Div. 5.
Sadly we come to those who can look forward to playing in lower company next season : Aidan Hilliard (“ I prefer the guys down here”) and Ed. O’Neill (“who thinks differently”). Barry O’Briain and Sean O’Dwyer (“something about parrots was muttered”). George “Jet- Lagged” Ormsby and “I saw it on the Internet” Gallagher. Also demoted were Brian Murray (“I gotten over bigger hurdles in my time” and “( did I show you my grandchildren’s trophies”) Michael Mc Connon.
Steady As She Goes
If you have not been mentioned so far that is because you are the most steady and reliable set of guys in the League who have again retained your very high , middling or well – low status. Be happy Neville, Matt, Larry, Big Jim Reynolds ( wouldn’t dare say anything about him!!), Cathal, Brian, Brendan Kernan ( past Captain and Past President of SLTC) , John, Bill, Jim ( O/75 National Tennis title holder), Jon Mooney( I’m really a badminton player!).
Guys who had to withdraw for various reasons over the course of the year – Rory O’Reilly, Jim Lillis, Dave Lawson ( there is only one of him too) , Liam Carroll and Eamonn are all welcome to join us again in September.
We always welcome new members to join the Retired And Over 60 Club.
