Newry Pool League Blog

 

The Vegas Cup was whittled down to the last 8 on Thursday night. Three Premier Division teams left the 'Party' while Premier Division leaders Trainor's A and current champions CWC A booked their place in the next round but not without their drama's.

 
Bar. 7 Duke Street Warrenpoint stunned Premier Division side McGuigan's with a comprehensive victory in Newry. Bar 7 are in a decent position aiming for promotion from Division 1 up to the glorious pastures of the Premier Division. 
This Bar 7 team is mostly made up from former Boyds players that slid from the top tier to the bottom in a matter of years but these lads are on the climb again. 
Gerard McGuigan and Nicky Langton put McGuigan's 1 up as the favourites looked to stamp their authority on the game. 
Kevin and JP Lennon squared things before Kris and Richard Fletcher fired the visitors 2-1 up. 
Shane Cunningham beat Damien Flanagan for 3-1 and from that moment Bar 7 realised they had a real chance. 
Conor O'Hare got lucky to beat Chris O'Hare to make it 3-2.
The biggest result was the next one. The sensational Martin Conroy was beaten by Kevin Lennon in a massive shock. It was a severe kick to the sensitive area for McGuigan's. 
Pat Byrne is an unbelievably attacking player and can beat anyone if his luck is in but Kris Fletcher is a bit more patient and it was Fletcher that fired his Bar 7 into the last 8 with a score of 5-2.
Mike McArdle reduced the margin to 5-3 by beating Jeremy O'Brien but it was Bar 7 that rubbed salt in the wounds by taking the final frame. Richard Fletcher was in backstroke mode when he beat Paul McAreavey for a satisfying 6-3 win. 

 
Ballyholland caused somewhat of a shock when they dumped Nan's Rams from the Vegas Cup. Some would say this was no shock as they are odds on to swap Divisions.
Mark Maguire and Rony O'Reilly had the hosts Nan's 1 up but Ballyholland led 2-1 by the end Pairs.
Robbie White returned with another sharp shooter Niall McQuillan to level and Jim McMahon with captain Brendan Keenan put Ballyholland 2-1 up.
Mark Pentony levelled for 2-2 and it was game on.
Robbie White was the toast of Ballyholland as the teacher made it 3-2 Ballyholland but yet again it was all square when Nan's legend Mal Maguire continued his return to form for 3-3.
Pat McClenaghan hadn't won a league game in his last 6 attempts but he did bag a Vegas Cup win to put Nan's one win from the last 8. 4-3 Nan's.
This post Christmas cracker just had to go to the wire and the superb Niall McQuillan got his 2nf of the night to level at 4-4.
Andrew Chan would take on Ballyholland skipper Brendan Keenan for a place in the last 8. No pressure then!
Chan is on a 4 match (league) losing streak and had earlier lost his Pairs game.
Brendan Keenan had lost a pressure final frame against Ollie White when the Division 1 league leaders fell to Forester's A 5-3 in the final league game before the break. Keenan did win his Pairs match earlier in the night so he had reason to feel confident.
It was the grinder Keenan that produced the goods as he out-foxed the free potting Chan and it was Ballyholland that matched on to the last 8 as Nan's miserable season continued.

 
Whitecross got trounced when Hustlers  headed out to the Countryside in this very one sided contest.
Hustlers had the perfect start by taking all 3 Pairs matches. Ciaran and Billy O'Neill, Barry Murphy and Joey Magill then Kevin Magee and Shane McAllister had the Bellinis side cruising.
Alan Burke got Whitecross back into the tie when he took the opening Singles tie but Hustlers where in no mood to roll over.
Shane McAllister made it 4-1 and Ciaran O'Neill wrapped the match with little fuss 5-1.
Barry Murphy is having a very good season and the underrated Murph made it 6-1.
Billy O'Neill had the score 7-1 before man of the moment and the Hustlers Hall of Famer Kevin Magee finished the route 8-1.

 
While Trainor's weren't pushed to the limit they didn't get everything their own way against high flying St. Monnina A.
St. Monnina A are joint top of Division 1 but the arrived in Trainor's without their talisman, former overall individuals winner Stephen Teggart.
Trainor's got off to a super start taking a 2-0 lead in the Pairs but the Saints stunned Trainor's when Conor McQuiad and Paddy Hughes grinded out a win over natural potters Sean Murray and Eddie McCaughey to make it 2-1.
Paddy Tavey and Liam Bradley then Jimmy and Seamus McVerry had taken the 1st wins of the night. 
Captain fantastic Niall McVerry then Eddie McCaughey put Trainor's on the hill as they cruised to a 4-1 advantage.
If Trainor's thought it was going to be all plain sailing they were wrong. The wind was changing and Michael Teggart did Dee Kearney's Trainor's career no favours when he beat the aforementioned Kearney to make it 4-2.
Premier Division leaders Trainor's were getting twitchy when St. Monnina captain Conor McQuiad beat the out of sorts James O'Hagan and now it was 4-3. Game on.
Andrew Mackin is a good steady player but he was never going to trouble the rock solid Paddy Tavey. Tavey is up there with the best when he's on form and even his B game is too much for most. Tavey sealed Trainor's last 8 spot comfortably.
Paddy Hughes beat Seamus McVerry to finish the scoring at a tight looking 5-4.

 
Gary Gibney and Collie McCann beat Kieran McMahon and Terry McNally to give Millvale the lead against quadruple holders CWC A.
Millvale were in dreamland when Benny Hoey and the sparkling Ryan Diamond made it 2-0 when they outplayed Bernie Magee and Pat Brady.
Raymond McKenna and Harvey Lavelle eased the CWC pressure by taking last of the Pairs against Dean Fallon and Willie Hughes.
The singles games crushed Millvale as Kieran McMahon, Harvey Lavelle, Pat Brady and Raymond McKenna raced to the tape for 5-2.
Terry McNally and Bernie Magee made it 7-2.
Colly McCann, Gary Gibney, Benny Hoey, Dean Fallon, Willie Hughes and Martin McGoldrick did themselves proud in the singles but fell short. How Ryan Diamond didn't play in the singles is one of life's Little mysteries but that's neither here nor there.
 
Bosco battered McSwiggans 7-2 as they strolled into the last 8.
Caolan Murphy and Ryan Lennon have McSwiggans a surprise lead but it was 2-1 by the end of the Pairs to Bosco.
Eamon Hurley, Robbie Devlin, Ryan Devlin, Sean McCaul and Gary Wilson fired Bosco 7-1 up. McSwiggans got a consolation final frame of the night win from Gary Clarke.
 
Johnny Murphy's gave Orchard Bar a good game out in the Orchard.
Marty White and Darren O'Hanlon pulled a frame back for Murphy's when they trailed 2-0 in the Pairs.
Jamie Fletcher and Mervyn Kernaghan then made it 4-1 and the South Armagh side looked down and out.
Darren O'Hanlon and Kevin Crilly breathed new life into the contest to make it 4-3.
Liam Turley made sure it wouldn't go to a decider when he beat John Daly for 5-3.
Pat Quinn has been quite unbelievable this season but he won't be too worried that the so far unbeaten David Cromie extended his run to make it 6-3 Orchard.
 
Bears progressed 6-2 against Dan's Rebels despite going 1 down.
Raymond Flynn made in 1-0 to the hosting Dan's but then Bears kicked into gear.
Eugene McDermott, Ralph Crummy and Paul Murphy took the next 3 singles games after Bears led the Pairs 2-1.
That was enough for 5-1 and Bears were in the last 8.

Newry Pool League Blog Hot Shots So far This Season

 

Happy Christmas to all our Newry and District Pool League members and friends, both locally and afar. Its a time of the year for chilling out and relaxing if at all possible but we in the blog endeavour to give you something beautiful to read during the festive period.

In this blog we are going to take a look at our Christmas Crackers. The Star's on top of our festive tree. A wee look at our Christmas number 1's.

Yes it's that time of the year to look at our top marksmen. Who is the top scorer in the Premier Division? The elite players around Newry and South Armagh will be revealed.
Most of the big hitters are on the list and of course, just like a really good cracker, there are some nice surprises too.

1. PAT BRADY:
9 wins/2 defeats. He destroyed the field last year and he leads the way this season. He is joined by two other players but small details makes 'Big Pat' our Christmas no. 1.
Brady won his 1st match with a Break and Dish. He lost his 1st game 3 matches in, then lost his next before going on a 7 streak winning run. Brady isn't getting things all his own way this season but he is still top of our Christmas tree. His ability to always play the correct shot means opponents never get an easy chance handed to them. Brady will always be one of the most feared opponents in Newry Pool.

2. MICHAEL FEENAN:
9 wins/2 defeats. Surprise package Michael Feenan is like a new player for Whitecross this season. He has one break finish this season so far. He lost his opening game before winning 5 in a row. A defeat against the Orchard Bar was followed by 4 more wins. Feenan is up there with the elite players in the Premier Division. The big question is can he stay? His stunning long potting ability catches the eye but the big difference for the 'Tornado' is his calmness on the black ball which was always his Achilles heel.

3. KIERAN McMAHON:
9 wins/2 defeats. Kieran McMahon is always there or thereabouts when it comes to our top scoring charts. The snooker ace is the master of consistency. He has an almost identical record to Feenan with 1 break finish which occurred in his opening game of the season. He followed that with 8 wins. 2 defeats in a row stopped him in his tracks but the 'Machine' won his last game to join the leader board. McMahon only got pipped for 2nd place as it was Feenan who inflicted him with his 1st defeat. McMahon has surgical precision when in amongst the balls and is one of the finest positional players in our local game.

4. PADDY CLARKE:
8 wins/2 defeats. Paddy Clarke is widely regarded as the most talented player in the Newry and District Pool League. Clarke won his 1st 2 before missing the defeat to Bears. He returned with a defeat against Trainor's. He sandwiched a win in between his 2nf loss of the season. 5 wins on the spin including a break and dish puts him joint 4th in our top scorer list.

5. SEAMUS McVERRY:
8 wins/2 defeats. Seamus McVerry missed Trainor's opening game of the season but won his next 3 before tasting his 1st defeat. He won his next 5 before a defeat in his final game against CWC A kept him out of the top 3. We only separated McVerry from Paddy Clarke because the latter had a break finish.

6. SHANE PHELAN:
8 Wins/3 defeats. Shane Phelan is our current player of the year and is holder of the Pairs title with brother Cathal. He started his league campaign with a break finish which gives him the edge over the other players on 8 wins. He followed that with defeat against CWC but 5 wins in a row fired him up the scoring charts. He finished the last 4 games winning half of them finishing the half term with a win.

7. TONY McGOVERN:
8 wins/3 defeats. Tony McGovern got off to a sensational start to the season by winning his 1st 7 league games. The Orchard star has seen the wheels fall off a bit when he lost 3 of his last 4 games which will dissapoint him.

8. PADDY TAVEY:
8 wins/3 defeats. Paddy Tavey has adapted to life out in the South Armagh Pub Trainor's like a Duck to  water. Tavey lost his opening game and only won 2 from his 1st 4. 6 wins in a row put him in contention to join the very top of our winners charts but defeat in his final game (which was against his old side CWC) dropped Tavey down the pecking order.

9. NIALL McVERRY:
8 wins/3 defeats. Niall McVerry has been ruthless in his quest for trophies this season as the Trainor's captain. On the baize he won 4 out his 1st 5 games. He then won 4 of his next 5 and lost his final game before the break for a very decent 1st half of the season.

10. HARVEY LAVELLE:
7 wins/2 defeats. Harvey Lavelle got off to the worst possible start losing his opening 2 games before missing the defeat to Bears. Lavelle won his next 6 in a row. He missed the return leg against Bears but ended the 1st half of the season with a win against title contenders Trainor's.

11. MARTIN CONROY:
7 wins/2 defeats. Martin Conroy is the reason McGuigan's holding their own this season with a virtuoso performance so far. He lost his opening game 6 wins out of his next 7 put Conroy right up the leader board but he messed 2 games and a row and then won his last game to finish with an excellent 7 wins from 9 games played.

12. SEAMUS KEENAN:
7 wins/3 defeats. Seamus Keenan is a surprise package to make our top scorers. The 'snail' has grinded out a string of big wins including 2 victories against CWC. Keenan won his 1st 3 games before his 1st defeat. He won 2 of his next 3 games before missing the game against bottom side Nan's. His 3rd defeat was followed by 2 wins from his final 2 games to deservedly make it onto our top scorers chart.

13. JAMIE FLETCHER:
7 wins/3 defeats. Jamie Fletcher has been a breath of fresh for Orchard Bar. His youthful enthusiasm has benefitted the team no doubt about that. Fletcher didn't play in the opening match for Orchard. His 1st game was a win then he received his 1st defeat. 6 wins on the trot propelled Fletcher into contention for top spot but he lost his final 2 games to slip down the table.

14. DAVID CROMIE:
6 wins/0 defeats. Yes it's not a misprint. David Cromie has yet to get that losing feeling in the 2018/19 league campaign. If only Orchard Bar could get him there every game they might be clear in 3rd place. He started with a win, missed game 2, won week 3, missed 2 in a row, won 2 in a row, missed the next before ending with a win. He played 1 game against the top 2 which was a victory against table topping Trainor's Bar. Terrific start for Cromie.

Newry Pool league Blog Div  1/2

Forester's A smashed the Division 1 title race wide open again after shocking league leaders Ballyholland. John Magee captained his Forester's side to a 3-0 lead and needed the final frame for a stunning 5-3 win at the City venue. Unfortunately for Kieran Loughran, Hugh McGrath and the rest of the boys John Magee didn't bother putting full names on the score sheet so they can't get the write-up they deserve. 

Stevie Teggart is the obvious jewel in the St. Monnina A crown but they have many diamonds in their ranks as the surged to the top of Division 1 on frame difference. 

Tom McGuinness, Paddy McCann and Paddy Hughes are a wealth of experience that only Mastercard could buy. (other credit cards are available 😉). 

The gulf in class between top and bottom hasn't in this Division hasn't always been apparent thanks to a plethora of surprise results but St. Monnina whopped bottom club Glen Social Club. 

Declan Brady, Stephen Teggart and Stephen Cunningham got the South Armagh cueiests into a 3-0 lead when they beat Paddy Morgan, Jay Kelly and Caolan Lonergan. 

Kevin Sands got the better of Michael Teggart to give the South Down side hope of an unlikely comeback. 

Tom McGuinness is an experienced top player and has more than his share of talent and bottle. He beat Raymond Sands who himself has no shortage of experience. 4-1 Saints. 

Paddy McCann is a class act once he hits form and he had little problems in sewing up both points for 5-1. He beat Pat Rice comfortably. 

Brian Harte made it 6-1 by beating Ben Mackin before top potter Paddy Hughes rounded off a terrific team performance by beating Mark Kidd and made the scoreline a thumping 7-1.

Division 1 of the Newry and District Pool League has no teams from Newry in the top 4 in the current league standings. St. Monnina A and Ballyholland are joint top with 13 points and only 1 point behind them is Johnny Murphy's and Bar 7 Duke Street Warrenpoint, both on 12 points. 

Murphy's have a tight solid looking squad and consistency will be key to honours this season. 

CWC B on the other hand have struggled since their promotion from Division 1 last season. Just two wins and two draws sees CWC B in the relegation zone and will need drastic improvement to avoid a return ticket back to Division 2.

Marty White is a reliable potter for Murphy's and he put the home side 1 up. 

The Brilliant Tommy Rooney and the exciting potting machine Chris Cunningham fired the City side into a surprise 2-1 lead but they couldn't build on it. 

Anthony Reynolds and the superb Darren O'Hanlon reversed the 1 frame lead for Johnny Murphy's who now led 3-2.

The legendry former committee member Pat Quinn beat Kieran Cunningham to make sure the South Armagh side would get at least a draw from the night. 4-2.

Calium McParland is improving all the time and he grinded out a win over the stubborn Kieran Larkin and now CWC B could dream of salvaging a draw. 

Oliver Lonergan was the hero for Johnny Murphy's when claimed the win and the 2 points. 

No. 7 in Warrenpoint kept pace with the Division 1 leaders with a good win over a dangerous Bosco team. 

Darren Devlin gave the visitors the lead when he beat No. 7 proprietor Kris Fletcher. 

Marty Bolton and Richard Fletcher and the former Boyds team mates 2-1 up before Robert Devlin levelled at the halfway mark for Bosco. 

Kevin Lennon and Shane Cunningham took the next two for No. 7 and the Point side were 4-2 up and had all the momentum. 

That carried into the penultimate frame when Chris O'Hare wasted no time in wrapping the 2 points. 

Ciaran Morgan is a top player and it was a bit of a surprise for Bosco to play such a talented player last. He won the final frame of the night to finish the scoring at 5-3.

Windmill, Bosco and Cavern are in a bunch sitting in behind the leaders and could mount a challenge. They are just 3 points away from top spot. Cavern only got promoted from Division 2 last and will be delighted with their progress but they look the least likely of that group to push on for the title. 

Trainor's B and Forester's A sit 1 point further back on 9 points. Although only 4 points away from the top they will be looking at results below them more than above them. 

CWC B and Glen are on 6 points and joint bottom. CWC B look best equipped to drag themselves away from the relegation zone with a lot of the players having played in the top tier a number of years ago. 

Glen look snookered to be fair. They lost a few of their best players before the season started. It's a tricky visit though for any team so winning their home games will be vital to any hopes of retaining their Division 1 status.

Newry Pool League Blog Week 11

 

This wasn't just a Christmas stuffing. This wasn't a turkey roasting. This was a brutal slaying. There's putting down a marker and then there's a Pre-Christmas massacre.

CWC A trailed league leaders Trainor's A by 3 points going into this crucial encounter. The current Champions have looked vulnerable this season, while the pretenders to the crown look irresistible.
Last week CWC needed to win the final 3 frames to scrape over the line 5-3 against the Bears that beat them earlier in the season.  Trainor's had no such drama when they hammered Orchard Bar 8-0 in their last outing. 
This game was set up beautifully. A win for Trainor's would put them 5 clear and one hand on their 1st ever top flight trophy. A win for CWC would smash the title race wide open.
Seamus McGeoghegan got the nod to lead the line for CWC in a massive shake up in formation from captain Pat Brady. McGeoghegan is having a poor season and while his Trainor's opponent Eddie McCaughey has missed large parts of the season, his potential is clear. He is a deadly potter it wasn't a huge surprise McCaughey took the opener for his 4th league win. It's one Brady most likely decided to take on the chin and move on from a 0-1 deficit.
Well if the bear was sleeping Trainor's well and truly poked it.
Trainor's captain Niall McVerry looked set to fire his South Armagh side 2-0 up but he inexplicably missed a routine black after potting 7 reds. It was the whack that woke the bear as the slick Paddy Clarke cleared sensationally to level the match. Clarke just oozes class and with the table at his mercy he has no equal in the Newry And District Pool League. Clarke notched his 8th win from 10 played. 
Kieran McMahon was given a scare by former team mate Paddy Tavey but the CWC machine marched on for 2-1 and Trainor's looked shell shock as cracks in their title bid began to appear. McMahon now has 9 wins from 11.
Super potter Seamus Murray lost to the blogs biggest  No1 fan Terry McNally for 3-1.
The legendry Harvey Lavelle former individuals champion James O'Hagan was the deal breaker. Trainor's needed a win from one of their star players to stem the tide. Lavelle was absolutley brilliant taking out a stunning finish as O'Hagan crumbled and it was 4-1. Lavelle improved his personal tally to 7 from 9. It was O'Hagan's 4th defeat in 5 games and surely questions will be asked about Captain Niall McVerry's selection process. 
Pat Brady has masterminded success in the local pool scene which cannot be equalled. He's dominated Newry pool for nearly two decades. He's mopped up everything there was on offer in South Armagh pool and he's now collecting trophies regularly in the Dundalk league. If you were getting paid to polish Pat Brady's trophies you would certainly earn your money. His Trainor's opponent Jimmy McVerry was always a shot away from a catastrophe and when he potted the white 'Big Pat' cruised to the winning post for 5-1. Brady has won his last 7 in a row and has 9 from 11.
Niall McVerry took a massive gamble playing two of his best players as his last two on the card. If he or Paddy Tavey had won then it might have been a masterstroke but the fact remains it didn't work and two of his reliable foot soldiers were only introduced when the war was over. Raymond McKenna was still too good in the dead rubber game with former individual winner McVerry.
6-1 down and Liam Bradley gets the nod. He's been in superb form this season. With only 1 defeat and 6 victories Bradley was hot favourite. Bernie Magee has been pretty awful and I'm sure he'll be the 1st to admit that himself. Losing 3 of his last 4 and losing 5 before Thursday night is not great for winning trophies. Bradley finally ended the rot and got another frame on the board for Trainors.
It was too little, too late for Trainors. CWC had shown their class and ripped Trainor's apart winning 6 frames on the spin.
Can Trainor's recover from this hammer blow? There is the massive 'elephant in the room' about Niall McVerry's team selections. There's more than Dee Kearney unhappy with the way the team is being picked. Can McVerry hold his team together? Maybe the Christmas break has at the perfect time. They can reflect on a good 1st half of the season and come back refreshed and ready to challenge for the title.
CWC A are still a point behind Trainor's but what a result that was for the City side. They will be one team itching to get back on the baize after the festive break.
What a 2019 we have to look forward to! 
 
Bears remain the only team to beat last seasons quadruple winners CWC A but have struggled for wins ever since. Orchard Bar travelled into Town fully expecting to export 2 points back out the Rathfriland Road and make sure of their 3rd place in the league. 
They got the shock of their lives when they got slapped from pillar to post by a Bears side that at long last showed their bite in the Premier Division again.
Neil Heaney and Diamuird Lonergan struck to put Bears 2-0 up. They very impressive Jamie Fletcher and sharp shooter Gerard Bagnall losing out for Orchard. It was an inexperienced front two for Orchard but their steady heads were soon to visit the table.
Darren Devlin has been there and done it and he pulled it back to 2-1 when he beat Garry Powell for his 5th win in 7 games. 
Tony McGovern has been in amazing form this season since ditching the hanger on McGuinness with 8 wins. But he met Eugene McDermott in inspirational mood and it was the Bears old head that won to make it 3-1.
Seamus Keenan and Liam Turley could hardly differ in styles. The 'Snail' Keenan is a master at slowing the game down and grinding opponents to a pulp. Turley is a fire cracker whizzing in shots from everywhere and anywhere. He is exciting to watch but exciting doesn't always get the job done and it was Keenan that made it 4-1 Bears. It was only Turley's 8th defeat in 9 games so it could be worse! 
Orchard were down and soon to be out. Ralph Crummy is one of the most likeable players on the local pool circuit but he's ruthless on the baize when he's on form. Brendan Devlin is a fine player in his own right but it just wasn't their night as Crummy took the points for 5-1.
Eddie Heaney took his foot off the gas and let David Cromie put some respectability on the scoreline for 5-2. Incredibly Cromie has won all 6 league games he's played. 
Adrian Holman probably was thinking he would be tucked up in his bed in about 20mins time when Mervyn Kernaghan pipped him to finish the scoring 5-3 Bears. Kernaghan has won 3 of his last 4 and back to form after a dreadful start to the season for him. 
 
Hustlers took the final two frames of the night to salvage a hard earned draw against McGuigan's Bar.
Billy O'Neill and Kevin Magee had the home side Hustlers 2-0 up before McGuigan's hit 4 on the spin.
The superb Martin Conroy, John Hogan, Pat Byrne and Damien Flanagan enjoyed success and McGuigan's looked favourite for the points at 4-2.
Ray Magee pulled it back to 4-3 and Barry Murphy would play Paul McAreavey for the points. 
Both are good solid players with similar styles. Both decent potters when on form but lack of practice leaves both players prone to silly mistakes. Murphy is enjoying the better season and got another pressure frame winner on Thursday night for an exciting draw. 
The result does little to ease either sides relegation fears but it's all to play for when we return in the new year. 
 
Talking of relegation Nan's Rams will be wondering how they are still only on 2 points for their half-season's work. They have some real quality players and if they get a bit of luck in the new year they can close the gap at the bottom. 
Another 5-3 defeat this time against Whitecross means they are the only side yet to pick up a league victory in all 3 Divisions.
Michael Feenan picked up his 9th win from 11 games and captain Shane Phelan chipped in with his 8th to put Whitecross 2 nil up.
Stephen Sherry made it 2-1 before the reliable Alan Burke put 2 between the sides for the 2nd time at 3-1.
Mickey O'Hanlon picked up his 1st win in 5 attempts to double his tally for the season and it was 4-1.
Leigh McAlinden is having a tough season but his 2nd win in his last 2 games could be a turning point for him and it was 4-2.
Whitecross could have been getting nervous but there's no player Whitecross would rather have playing for their points than Cathal Phelan. He's suffering his worst season since he lifted a cue but his 4th win of the season sealed the points for 5-2.
Mal Maguire has been having a nightmare season but his win at the end made it 5-3 and gives him hope going into the new year.
