Our Barton Cup team fell at the first hurdle today following a tough match against a strong team from Naas. With home advantage on the Naas side of the draw it was always going to be a tough task.
Niall O’Connor partnered with Pat Reid got the first points on the board winning 2&1. This was followed shortly by two Naas points in Naas before our 2nd home pairing of Diarmuid McCarthy & Vinny Chapman were beaten on 17. That meant the remaining pairing of Eddie Ingram & Martin Deaton were called in on 18 in Naas having put up a great fight to keep their match alive to the death.
The match was was followed by a lovely meal in both clubs. Best of luck to Naas in the next round.
Next up for interclub action have our mixed team who take on Rathsallagh in a couple of weeks time.
