2009 Senior Masters Champions

Congratulations to the Senior pool team. Captained by Paul Wright, the team had great start to their 2009 campaign. After four great wins against Wales, Scotland England and Northern Ireland, the team hit a stumbling block. In the second leg after having two defeats in a row against the defending Champions England and a tough Wales team. The Lads never gave up their belief in pursuit of the title. After qualifying third in the round robin stages the team went on to eliminate an even stronger and more determined Scotland side from the tournament, beating Scotland 13-8. The team then went on to meet defending champions England in the final. After a long grouling match with plenty of mind games the Lads got what they came for. Well done Paul Wright (LEFTY), Derek Hall (HOLLY), Shane (The Marcellus) Connors, Kevin (THE SLIM REAPER) Connolly, Joe (The Sniper) Morris and Cormack (Ice Man) Dennis. Smashing pool.
