Two of Fermanagh’s top young tennis players Eimear Smyth and Kyran Maguire (pictured above) have been rewarded for their excellence and hard work with a call up to the Ulster U14 Provincial team to play at the All-Ireland Provincials in Castlebar next week.

Kyran and Eimear have enjoyed highly sucessful years and a busy summer thus far and their representative calls are fitting rewards for the talented duo.

Eimear won both the Winter and Spring Regional Matchplays, she won three out four matches in the Ulster Provincial matchplay event to finish fifth, finished runner-up in the Lurgan U14 Singles, runner-up in the West of Ulster Singles and in the Ulster Championships at the Boat Club in Belfast, she had two great wins to reach the quarter-finals before losing out narrowly in a third set.

Kyran has had a great season so far with a lot of miles travelled throughout Ireland to achieve hIs targets. He finished fifth in the Ulster Provincials Winter and Spring events, won two out three matches in the Ulster v Leinster challenge in DCU Dublin, won the U14 Singles in Lurgan, won the U14 West of Ulster Singles and Doubles, was runner-up in the U14 Singles in Castlebar, Dundalk and CIYMS Belfast. He made the semi-final in Ballycastle and Sligo and at the Ulster Championships at the Boat Club in Belfast he was runner-up in the Doubles in a competition comprising 72 competitors.

Coach Matthew Mc Gann who has worked hard with both Eimear and Kyran said he was delighted for both as all the hard work and dedication throughout the winter months and into tournament season has paid off with this call up and he hopes that both will treasure and enjoy the experience .
