Victory For Clegg

Northern Ireland champion, Davy Clegg, won the latest National Open at Morton Community Centre. He beat Stephen Rodgers 3-0 in the final, after eliminating old rival, Kenny Beggs, on shots in the semi, following a 2-2 draw.

Surprise package of the day was Peter Morrison, who qualified unbeaten from a tough group, behind Beggs but ahead of Barry Spence, before losing narrowly to the experienced Stephen Rodgers in the semi-final. An excellent performance also by Rodgers, to reach his first Open final, having earlier beaten Clegg to top his group.

Beggs got the better of Clegg in the Veterans, beating him 3-0 in the Final, following a marathon 5-4 shoot-out against Alistair Morrison in the semi, which required 12 shots from each player before they could eventually be separated.

Andrew Morrison won the Under-19 trophy, which was played as a 4-player round robin. Peter Morrison was 2nd, Judith Morrison finished 3rd and John Hughes, competing in his first tournament, was 4th.

Barry Spence beat Alistair Morrison 2-1 with a golden goal in the Plate Final.
