Ashbrook 2nd Team : Ladies Class 5, Dublin Lawn Tennis Winter League 2017

It was a wonderful occasion for Ashbrook Ladies 2nd Team who played in the Class 5 Winter League Final yesterday in Greystones LTC.  The team  played a very strong Clontarf 4th, team and unfortunately Ashbrook lost and didn’t make it 9 in a row. This Ashbrook team have had a terrific campaign,  they have worked very hard as a team , motivating each other, attending coaching sessions and having practice games every week and personally it was a privilege to be part it.
I would like to thank Marie Cassidy who did a wonderful job as Captain encouraging us all the way. The team didn’t need a sub until  the quarterfinals and semifinals, when Marie went on holidays but we had a super sub to take her place, Grainne Dilleen stepped in and played with Therese and won two very important matches to secure the team a place in the finals , Grainne a big thank you .
 On behalf Ashbrook LTC congratulations to the team, Dolores Molly &  Paula Jones, Therese Mulvey & Marie Cassidy and Cathryne McCarthy & Ann Strahan  you did your club proud.
On behalf of the team many thanks to all the supporters who came out to Greystones yesterday at 11 a.m to support us it was very much appreciated.
It’s been a very successful Winter League for Ashbrook ladies teams, Two promotions – 3rd team promoted to class 6 , 2nd team promoted to Class 4 and reaching a DLTC final and our 1st team remaining in Class 3 , well done to all who played.
Next up the Summer League which commences for the ladies  week beginning 8th May and let’s hope Ashbrook ladies will enjoy more success.
Again congratulations to the 2nd Team for a fantastic performance over the last 9 weeks, promotion and reaching a DlTC final a wonderful achievement.
