Team of the Week – Game 6
There was a couple of extremely tight games in the match between Marown A and Douglas A and both Colin Kelly & Dave Barney Kelly have been rewarded with places after edging out Stuart Garrett & Neil Withers in respective high quality affairs. All of the Castletown Teams are represented this week and B team player George Peach picked up a brilliant win over Dave Hughes at South Ramsey to book his berth. Town C’s Phil Smith has also been impressing recently and a 21-19 win at Ballaugh over John Keenan sees him gain another start in the team. The A team are represented by Nathan Cooil after he claimed a great scalp defeating Onchan’s Kevin Quirk 21-13, similarly Jordan Cain (Onchan) makes it for winning 21-6 over Andy Clark in the same match. The final place this week could have gone to one of 3 North Ramsey A players but Alan Callow secures the place after a hard fought 21-18 win over Robbie Cooil.
