5th September '09 - Anglo-Irish Cup 2009. Great Dane wins the first edition of the Anglo-Irish Cup (35-32 final score). In a very intense match, with constant overtaking between the two sides, the current English champions managed to keep their coolness and win in the last few minute over the equally strong Dublin International team. Chris O'Reilly deserve a special mention. This young player, recently moved from North Kildare to DI, showed already to benefit from the summer training with DI's experienced players. We hope that this competition, born as an initiative of the Dublin International Club and with the support of the English Handball Association, will see continuation in the coming years. -DVD of the match is available on request.
