Spring must be here! This Sunday sees the climax of the 2013 North West Spring League and although the forecast is for another bitterly cold day, the competition will be red hot in almost every division.
As always, there will be no training classes at the final. Instead you’ll have the chance to put all your weeks of hard work into practice in some novelty classes where speed and brains will win the day. Excitement guaranteed.
Letterkenny stands a great chance of taking top honours in both the Intermediate and Advanced Intermediate divisions but, with double points to play for, nothing can be taken for granted. Leo currently holds a sliver of a lead over Anne Chambers in the Intermediate league while Damien has a slightly more substantial advantage over his neighbouring club rivals at Advanced Intermediate level.
Inishowen have put up a great performance in the novice classes and only Eamonn McGee of the Gaeltachts stands between them and a clean sweep of the placings in both the Crosspoles and Welcome Stakes. The Gaeltachts dominate the Primary and Advanced Primary classes with Enda our only realistic prospect of a victory at that level.
So it looks as if the spoils are going to be nicely distributed amongst the clubs on what promises to be a day of cracking competition and unrivaled excitement.
