Stubbs brothers aiming to make it a double for IIBA Masters Pairs
Raymond and Gordon Stubbs will today aim to turn back the clock in the IIBA Master Pairs at the Watson Stadium.
The Ballinderry brothers were the inaugural winners back in 2014, but admit it will be an even tough job this time.
"It's difficult to win this tournament once, never mind twice," said Gordon Stubbs. "We'll go in with the attitude of taking one game at a time."
Alan Paul approaches the tournament in the best possible shape having won the Irish Open at Shaws Bridge a fortnight ago.
Paul was partnered by John Quinn last year, but the big Ballylennon man is unavailable for the weekend action, so Mark Wilson comes into the equation.
There are a number of experienced pairings capable of going the distance, with Wilson and Paul leading the way. But with Joe and Pauline Beattie added to the mix, along with Gary Moore and Mark Beattie; Graham and Peter Christie; Andy and David Morrison; DJ and Jonny Wilson and Liam and Colm McHugh, it's certain to be a hectic fight to the finish line.
