Wilbert Armstrong reporting on the match said “Thanks to Banbridge for a very competitive match. The first match was very tight with William just losing out in the fifth to Andrew. Mike then followed that up with a hard fought 3-1 win over Arnold and when Wilbert took out Jimmy 3-0 it looked like the home side were cruising to victory. Banbridge battled valiantly but came out on the end of a 7-3 defeat. Andrew and Mike were the stars of a great team performance from Ballyclare. William was unlucky for Banbridge not to come away with a few more wins.
Thanks to Banbridge for a good natured, enjoyable match.”
