The town seniors entered the season with a depleted panel but produced a slick group effort in the second appearance of the outdoor campaign.

Peter Hunniford proved too strong for Ireland international Martin McHugh.

Derek Wright and Dane Jordan each enjoyed significant scoring at the expense of, respectively, Stephen McKinley and James Caldwell.

Richard McMullan finished down by a single shot to Barry Browne.

It marked a superb recovery from the league season’s opening single-shot reverse by Banbridge, which provided two points.


Portadown’s McMullan has been selected for the NIBA’s Senior Inter-Association Championship trial game on Monday in Lisnagarvey.


St Patrick’s Magheralin will host a summer triples tournament from Monday.

Everyone is welcome to take part, with play set to start at 7.30 and playing partners organised on the night.
