Gary Kelly's path to title triumph obstructed by familiar face

By Staff Reporter

Gary Kelly will attempt to regain the Provincial singles title, but must first see off the challenge from his Ballymoney team-mate Martin McAleese in the semi-final tonight.

The pair lock horns in Portstewart and although Kelly will be favourite to progress, he won't have things all his own way.

The winner will face either Nicky McCaw or Mark Jones in tomorrow's decider.

Today, Provincial Championships, Singles: N McCaw (Ballymoney) v M Jones (Portglenone); M McAleese (Ballymoney) v G Kelly (Ballymoney).

Junior singles: C Marshall (Limavady) v J Jacob (Letterkenny); D O'Kane (Letterkenny) v JP Fahy (Portrush).

Youth singles: C Marshall (Limavady) v S Martin (Ballymoney).

Triples: K Service (Limavady) v M Wilson (Cookstown); B McAlary (Ballymoney) v J Calvin (Coleraine).

Fours: G Kelly (Ballymoney) v V Dallas (Coleraine); C Mabon (Letterkenny) v I Ross (Coleraine).

Senior fours: J Hutchinson (Castlerock) v D Mitchell (Cookstown).

Andy Morrison is only one game away from making a successful defence of his Private Greens League singles title.

The Ballymena man will line out tomorrow against Dunbarton's Peter Convery in the final at Old Bleach.
