Sligo handballers start 60 x 30 campaign

Francis McCann & Hugh McGarry Golden Masters A doubles

Sligo’s handball 60 x 30 season begins
The 2012 Connacht handball 60 x 30 championships begin in earnest on Sat/Sun week for Sligo handballers against Roscommon. The Golden Masters A doubles pairing of Francis McCann & Hugh McGarry look to have the best chance of recording outright glory. Last year they reached the semi-finals, but were beaten by a very strong Tipperary pairing of Pat Griffin & Tony O’ Flaherty by 18-21, 13-21. Peter Chambers & Stanley Harte in the Golden Masters B doubles have been progressing well of late and will be hoping to do well in Connacht. Two years ago the duo reached the All-Ireland semi-finals. Michael McMorrow who partnered Collooney’s John McLoughlin to their first All-Ireland handball success in 2011 in the Emerald Masters B moves up to the A grade. McMorrow will partner St. Mary’s club mate Connell Cannon in this season’s campaign. The Junior C pairing Castleconnor’s Tom Foody & Joe Gorman will also be hoping for progress. Foody & Gorman beat another Castleconnor pairing of Michael Browne & Tom Tuffy in the County final two weeks ago.
The following players will represent Sligo in the quarter finals of Connacht handball championships 60 x 30 doubles v Roscommon opposition
