Just for the record the great Corrinshego side in 2007-08 season lost their first match in early March to Dans B then won the 1st Division title the following week. They went on to win the quadruple winning all 3 cups to add to their league title.
This 'Dreamteam' TJ's A side will now aim to be the first ever top tier team to finish the campaign unbeaten. The debate has already begun on social media sites as to whether this brilliant TJs squad is better than the all conquering Corrinshego side that dominated the Newry pool scene for over a decade. It is certainly a hot topic and one we will cover here on the blog in the near future!
What is for certain is that TJ's A have won the Premier division at a canter and after their 18th win from 21 games the Hill street side sit 10 points clear of their nearest rivals Carrickcuppen - a team they obliterated by an accumulative score of 14-2.
On Thursday night 2nd of April TJ'A bagged the 2014-15 league title against a struggling St.Catherines side only 2pts outside the relegation zone. The Saints put it up to the the soon-to-be champions trailing 3-2 at one stage.
Only needing a point to wrap up the title Declan Brennan & current overall Individuals champion Kieran McMahon got the visiting TJ's off to the perfect start beating Mark Pentony & Gary McKevitt.
Billy O'Neill threw a spanner in the works beating the silky skills of Manny Byrne to make it 2-1.
Jack Courtney who has been impressive all season put TJ's within a frame of retaining their crown when he beat Brian Dillon for 3-1.
Tristan Byrne had the opportunity to seal the deal but Ciaran O'Neill was in no mood to roll over and he pegged it back to 3-2.
It wasn't long of a wait though as captain fantastic Declan McConville was fittingly the man who got the adulation of his team mates with an assured performance and ensured the 1st ever Premier Division trophy headed down the street to TJ's. He beat Barry Murphy and it has to be said McConville has done a brilliant job looking after his team of star names.
Laurance McAlinden added the icing on the the cake and seal both the points on offer seeing off Kieran Morgan.
Not to miss out on the party Stevie Noade added the sprinkles of hundreds of thousands on top of the icing when he saw off the experienced Hugh Donnelly for another superb team performance to finish the scoring at 6-2.
Well done to TJ's A on winning the league. Now it's time to finish the league unbeaten & wrap up the Vegas, Cunningham and Divisional cup.
Question is, is there any team out there that can give them a game?
