THERE WERE jubilant scenes in Cashel recently when Wexford won the Under-16/17 All-Ireland final against Limerick.
Liam Shannon from Bridgetown and Bryan Kehoe from Castlebridge were first into action against Glen McNamara and Michael Whelan, and they got Wexford off to a dream start in their first game, with both players serving brilliantly and winning 15-0. The second game was closer but they kept the pressure on and won it 15-8.
Aaron Wright-Power and Jack Roche were next in against Eoin Hegarty and Ben Walsh and they were both in great form, winning their first game 15-11.
went 6-2 down in the second game but they stormed back with some lovely aces and won it out 15-10.
Wexford won the final on an aggregate score of 60-29. Stephen Greene and Ryan Bates, both Bridgetown, were the other players on the panel.
This All-Ireland win is a great boost for Juvenile handball in Wexford. Congratulations to all the players involved and their families for the support.
Thanks also to Richard Martin and Tony Reid for doing a great job as manager and assistant manager respectively.
