Conroy doubles up in bid to complete his World set

Kevin Conroy admits it would be a dream come true if he could complete a 'clean sweep' of titles at the Short Mat World Bowls Championships, which get under way this morning in Leigh, Greater Manchester.

Conroy, who is the current World singles title holder, will be joined by his dad Sean for the two-day showcase event.

Pairs: Section A: Sean Conroy, Kevin Conroy (Redeemer). Section B: David Doherty, Norman Rutledge (Sixmilecross).
