Annie and Caitlin McCullough have missed out on a place in the doubles final at the ITF junior world ranking tournament in Dundalk after losing to the top seeds yesterday.

But it was a close-run thing as the Windsor twins went down in three tight sets in their semi-final against Dubliners Georgia Drummy and Jennifer Timotin, losing 6-7 6-4 (10-5) after a two-hour battle.

The McCulloughs have been included in the Ulster Under-18 squad for next week's inter-provincial tournament in Bangor which runs from Monday to Thursday.

The girls' line-up also includes Lucy Octave, Emily Beatty and Laura Reid, all of whom will be joining the twins at the senior inter-pros which get under way in Kilkenny this afternoon.

The boys' U-18 team includes three newcomers in Hilden's Peter Corrie and Windsor players Ben McClurg and Jakob Robb.

A total of eight fresh faces have been named in the U-14 squads, with only Harry Ellesmere and Mary Parkash surviving from last year's line-ups.
