British Intercounty Championship 2012

Leinster Ladies promoted to Division 1 in the British Intercounty Championship

The Leinster senior ladies squash team travelled to Pontefract recently to take part in the British Intercounty Championships in Division Two. The team of Olivia French, Claire O’Brien, Jenny Dillon, Ciara Moloney and Niamh Brennan competed against Yorkshire, Worcestershire and Surrey.

The competition started on Saturday morning with a match against Worcestershire. Leinster came out on top with a 3/2 win. Next up was Yorkshire where the ladies had a convincing 5/0 victory. The decider on Sunday was always going to be a demanding match, and with very little recovery time, it was a daunting task. The Surrey team had been very impressive throughout the competition but with a massive team effort, the Leinster girls pulled through 3/2 in a nail-biting finish.

This result means that the Leinster team has gained promotion and next year will compete in Division One of the British Intercounty Championships.
