Dunbarton lift cup at Old Bleach

Ray McClean

DUNBARTON produced arguably the performance of the season to lift the IBA Irish Senior Cup for the seventh time at Old Bleach last weekend.

The Gilford men seemed destined for the runners-up spot when they trailed Ballymena by 28 shots with only six ends remaining but produced a stunning performance to triumph by six shots.

Andy Hughes' rink were to the fore with a 30-11 defeat of Nigel Robinson and DJ Wilson defeated Jim Baker by three shots. Andi Duncan and Stephen Coleman replied for the Braid side with the latter finishing eight shots ahead of Marty Trainor and Duncan winning by the same margin against Myles Greenfield.

Afterwards, the county Down side's David Copeland was ecstatic about the improbable outcome and said: "To be honest I don't know where to start. I never experienced anything like that before when you think you've seen it ..

"However, our boys are renowned for their battling qualities which were once again very much in evidence".

He added: "Great credit must go to Ballymena. They are a superb side and their day will come",

With the PGL Cup and Irish Cup already in the bag Dunbarton are on the threshold of completing a hat-trick by retaining the PGL Senior League title. Cookstown won the Irish Junior Cup when they defeated Whitehead by a single shot at Larne.

Meanwhile, Irish bowlers drew a blank in the inaugural SMPT Bond Bowls World Cup at Bromsgrove, England. The surprise winners were Sweden who defeated England in the final.

It was a similar story in the Henselite British Open with Joe Beattie the top Irish player exiting at the quarter-final stage. In an all-English final Gary McNabb, who defeated Beattie, got home by a single shot against Paul Pomeroy.
