McElduff claims Premier League crown in Tyrone

Share Story Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedin

Breacach’s Conor McElduff claimed his first Tyrone GAA Handball Premier League title on Tuesday night following a terrific battle with Shane O’Neill in Beragh. McElduff, the Teamtalkmag GAA Handballer of the Year in Tyrone for the past two years, has certainly enjoyed another fantastic start to his new season challenges and was forced on this occasion to produce some of his best handball to date to deny the reigning four times premier league winner.

The opening exchanges in this contest proved very finely balanced and following a series of intensely contested rallies the duo found themselves deadlocked at 5-5. It was then that O’Neill broke to lead 13-5 but again the McElduff came back strongly and soon levelled the game again at 13-13, the contest taking some 40 minutes at this stage alone. O’Neill went 17-14 in front again though but after some fantastic rallying and an absolute lung-bursting 30 shot rally they were level at 17-17. From there McElduff appeared to take a grip on the match and won the opening game 21-17.

The second game saw O’Neill quickly into his stride again and he did lead 4-1 before they were back neck and neck again at 5-5. Some excellent offensive play to the corners from McElduff then proved decisive though and he gradually opened up a margin to lead 12-15 and while O’Neill delivered 5 unanswered aces to make it 12-10, Conor soon had the momentum back in his favour to go 17-10 in front. In typical resillient fashion though O’Neill grabbed a flurry of aces to make it 17-15 but was effectively chasing the game still and McElduff held his nerve to storm to the finishing line on a 21-17 scoreline.

A terrific league final indeed for the packed crowd in Beragh, despite the adverse weather conditions, and sees Conor McElduff claim the first senior silverware of the 40×20 season in Tyrone. Next up will be the Mens Open Senior Singles championship in the county but that will actually follow a host of provincial championship games scheduled over the coming fortnight, with the Ulster Mens Open Senior Singles Championship down for this weekend in Kingscourt.

The Premier League final was preceded by this year’s Division 1 final as Breacach’s Jack Campbell faced Loughmacrory’s Joseph Kelly for the 2014/15 honours. Kelly had exhibited top class form in his semi final win over Sean Kerr and was fancied in this title decider but Jack Campbell was in super form on the night.

His retrieving in particular was superb and his ability to constantly peg back Kelly’s offensive play in a series of tough rallies had a major bearing on the final result. In the end Campbell ran out the winner of the 2014/15 Division 1 league with a 21-14, 21-13 victory. He will now set his sights on County and Ulster Minor championship challenges and will also go in with a favourites chance in the Tyrone Mens Senior B Singles Championship.
