There were great scenes in Abbottstown in Dublin last Saturday when Michael Glavey’s won the All-Ireland Intermediate Mixed Rounders title, defeating Dublin club Na Fianna in the final on a score of 36-11.
The game produced great batting and fielding with brilliant catches from Na Fianna’s Aodhaghan O’Deasmunaigh and Ronan Gately while Dylan Trindle and Sean Bailey starred for the Roscommon outfit.
The Dublin club led 5-4 after the third inning before Glavey’s produced an amazing performance at bat in the fourth. John Nolan and Anna Gallagher got great hits as they ran in 11 scores and turned the final on its head.
Na Fianna never gave in but they had no response to magnificent Roscommon fielding and, fittingly, it was man of the match, Dylan Trindle at short stop who combined with Eamonn Carty on third base to clinch the title for Michael Glavey’s
Michael Glavey’s team: Gretta Davis, Linda Rogan (captain), Áine Healy, Anna Gallagher, Dylan Trindle, Eamonn Carty, John Nolan, Sean Bailey, John James. Subs: Sharon Carty, Craig Davis, Fiona Raftery.
