Leeside Open 2013: Tralee Table Tennis Club Report: Tony Higgins
Just four players made the journey from Tralee for the Leeside Open. We had three representatives in the Under-17s, Kevin Johnson-Horgan and Adam Buckley who have just moved up from Under-14s, and Darragh Boyd who was playing U-12 last year. Kevin got through his group but fell at the next hurdle. Adam and Darragh ended up playing each other in the Plate, and it was Darragh who came out best and indeed went on to beat Sean Laffan in the Plate Final.
In the Under-14s, Kevin Browne and Darragh Boyd were drawn in the same group. They both qualified for the knockout stages, but Darragh's win over Kevin in the group gave him a better seeding for the knockout, and in the end he came sixth with Kevin finishing eighth. There will be some work to do if they are to challenge for Munster Caps this season!
