Emirjete Doda regained her Under 21 RILSA National Title at Joey’s Dublin recently beating the young and ever improving Caitlin Tucker from the CBS Westland Row in a close final.

Emirjeta has been to the forefront of the RILSA junior events since the inaugural Under 21 Championship in 2014 where she took the title for the first time and made history.  Emirjeta was again featured in the 2015 final where she was beaten by Danielle Randle but she came back again this year to reach the final 3 years in a row to regain her title and tops the junior National rankings.  Emirjeta has remained number 1 on the junior rankings since 2014 and looks likely to remain there for some time as she is way ahead on points that will see her finish the 2016-2017 season as number 1.

Another new record as 83 young RILSA players make up the current National RILSA Junior Ranking List.

After her success at Joey’s, she now is provisionally ranked number 5 on the National RILSA Rankings where the standard rises and she is hoping to keep within the top 10 before the end of the season.  Emirjetas sister Englentina reached the semis on the day and brings her into number 2 spot on the junior rankings, so this is yet another history making story with two sisters holding the top spots in Ireland on the junior rankings.

Caitlin Tucker is another up and coming RILSA junior who showed great flair and ability at Joey’s along with the steady Faye Jameson who is now ranked 3rd on the junior rankings.  All these young girls and those who played in the Under 21’s in Dublin have great promise for the future and are great ambassadors for the future junior girls snooker and billiards for the future.

Congratulations to Emirjeta on her success and to Caitlin on a great performance on the day.  A big thank you to all the girls who supported and partook in making the event a success.  Thanks to Annette for her help in refereeing the final and presenting the prizes and thanks to Rosie Carroll from the CBS for all her help.  Thanks to Derek Fagan and staff of Joey’s for providing fantastic facilities for our events.
