Leitrim Titles For Martin and Aaron

The Leitrim Mens 40×20 Singles Senior and Junior  Finals were played in Drumshanbo on Sunday with Martin Raftery taking the senior title and Aaron Scollan winning the Junior Final. 
Drumshanbos  Martin Raftery saw off the challenge of Fenaghs Danny Reilly on a score line of 21-9, 21-10 with the in-form Raftery giving a master class in serving and killing the ball keeping Reilly under immense pressure and unable to take control of either game.
The Junior Final was a different encounter between Drumshanbos Declan Lynch and Fenaghs Aaron Scollan with excellent serving and returning from both players.The first game had Declan Lynch in control with some brilliant power serves that Scollan simply couldnt counter. With some great rallies a very entertaining first game was taken by Declan Lynch 21-14. Aaron Scollan had serve for the second game which he made great use of racing into a 6-0 lead and went on to take the game 21-2. With the match gone to the tie-breaker Scollan again had serve having scored more aces and started  where he left off going 10 aces ahead before going on to take the game and match 21-5.
