Derrytresk Produce Heroics To Earn Date At Headquarters.
Somewhere in a newspaper last week there was an article that stated the 21st of January was viewed by many around the world as the most depressing day of the year. Well such doom and gloom merchants should have paid a visit to East Tyrone last week and they would have left with a different view of the order of things. There was not much talk about around Derrytresk about anything other than football as the whole community looked forward to the prospect of competing in an All Ireland Club semi final on Sunday 22nd. The sense of euphoria and excitement among the supporters was almost palpable as the date with destiny drew closer and the feel good factor was such that it could have lifted the mood of the nation..
From early on Sunday morning Tyrone registered cars were parking up outside O’Moore Park and the local groundsmen and gate attendants must have been wondering at what they were seeing as a queue of blue and white clad Derrytresk supporters waited patiently for the gates to open. When they finally did the best seats in the stand were quickly filled and the noise level was raised a decibel or two as the men, women and children from the Hill made their presence well and truly felt.
The team came out to a cacophony of noise which set the tone for the day and battle commenced. The men from the hill had come to do a job and were intent on settling for nothing less than victory. There were heroes all over the field as the “boys in blue” played the shirts off their backs on their way to a well deserved but hard earned six point win. There were many talking points and all will be discussed over the next few days but suffice to say the reputations of this great bunch have been enhanced even further and they can now look forward to appearing in Croke Park in the All Ireland Club Final the week after Tyrone and Kildare open the 2012 National League.
It has been a wonderful story thus far for all associated with the club and fingers crossed the final glorious chapter will be written in the nation’s capital on the 12thof February.
