It was a case of what might have been for our players on court at the weekend. Micheal Busher was narrowly defeated by his Carlow opponent, Aaron Geoghan in the Leinster Junior B Championship, going down 21-16, 21-19.
Similarly Brian and Ciaran Busher lost out by the narrowest of margins in their County Junior D Doubles Final. They led in the first game before being pegged back, losing by an agonising single ace, 21-20.
The pair upped their game in the second, winning it comfortably 21-9. They again led in the decider and looked like going on to claim a famous victory until their Wexford town opponents managed an unlikely comeback to win it 21-19 at the end. Nonetheless it was a great achievement for the lads to reach their first ever County Adult Final. Brian still has the Junior D Singles Final to come next Saturday against Adam Walsh and we wish him the best of luck in that.
