Ady's sweet Tones

What a fantastic performance by Portrush's Ady Toner. The North Coast man won 35/40 frames to earn an automatic invite onto the Northern Ireland 'A' Team for the 2014 European & World Championships at the NIPA Mens Trials which were held in the Maldron Hotel at the past weekend.

And a big well done also to trio, Gee Crawley, Past McAnally and Tony Tennyson who all secured a place on the Mens B1s by finishing 2nd, and joint 3rd respectively.
