Newell & McCarthy retain NI Doubles title

Congratulations to Sam Newell and Ronan McCarthy on retaining the Northern Ireland Mens Doubles title. The Competition was played to a finish in the Primacy Sports Bar, Bangor on Sunday 3rd February.

It wasn't all plain sailing though, as they had a couple of scares along the way, none more so than in the Quarter Final when a miscue with game on in the deciding frame from opponents Herbie O'Neill and Chris Geffrouy let Newell and McCarthy in to take their place in the Last 4.
