Irish Legends Cup 2016 – Day 1

The Dafabet Irish Legends Cup 2016 is underway in the brilliant venue that is Goffs, and, after day 1 the Irish Team leads by 8-4, deservedly. Ken, Mark, Fergal and Joe all played well in front of a supportive, but fair, enthusiastic crowd. It was 3-3 after the first session, but only Stuart managed to get a win for England in the evening.

From Ronnie’s point of view it wasn’t a great day: England lost both doubles where he was involved, and Fergal beat him in the evening. He made a 121, the highest break so far, in the only match he won in the afternoon. But he looked happy to reconnect with Tony Knowles who is playing in a Legends event for the first time.

It’s first to 18, so the match certainly isn’t over.
