Final Round of the Leinster Leagues

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.
