LCU Final Round in ALSAA, April 23rd.
After a tough season sadly our Armstrong Cup side was relegated. Going into the last round versus Bray we needed “snookers”. A loss 5-3 was no disgrace considering how highly rated they were, wins for Ravshan and Conor, as well as draws from Art and Marc was an honourable performance.
Well done to our Heidenfeld Trophy side who rallied in the last few rounds winning and picking up points, and despite a loss in the Last round their status was preserved. So next year we should have two Heidenfeld sides.

The Armstrong Cup side had a couple of tough results recently, losing 5.5-2.5 versus Balbriggan (wins for Kevin, Fergal and a draw for David) also a loss 6-2 v St. Benildus (win for Colm, and draws for Art and Conor).
The Heidenfeld Trophy side had a couple of good results recently, 6-2 win over Ballinasloe and a 5-3 loss to a strong St. Benildus side – this gives the side a very good chance at staying up.
The final round of the leinster leagues is on the 23rd of April (venue to be announced).
