Nenagh Squash Clubs Winter League finals took place recently and what an entertaining and high quality week of squash it was.

Having amassed the highest league points both Eoin Brislane & Eamon Kelly qualified direct to Division 1 semi-finals where their opponents were Brendan Spillane & Kieran Grace.

The final pitted Kieran Grace against Brendan Spillane who had never met before at this stage of the competition so spectators were keenly observing how it would pan out. Grace was quickest out of the blocks and won the first game on a comfortable 15-8 scoreline. The second game was tighter but the game went to Grace also. With being 2-0 down, the pressure was on Brendan Spillane to respond and in the third game he raced into a commanding lead which he never lost. The fourth game was a very tight affair with both players giving their all but Grace managed to hold his nerve and with some powerful driving kept Brendan Spillane at bay and won 15-11 to claim the division 1 title.
