BOWLS: Co Antrim ace Andy Kyle turns up heat in AIIB fours

Andy Kyle stormed through to the semi finals of the AIIB National Fours at Watson Stadium on Sunday.

Joined by Trevor Robinson, Andy Duncan and Graham McKee, the County Antrim boys certainly set down a title marker.

But they face a difficult semi final outing on Friday, January 20 against Chris Eadie, Jamie Watson, David Nixon and Mike Merritt, from the Belfast club.

Kyle defeated Belfast's Gerard McGleave (22-19) in his opening match in Sunday's play-off before roaring to a 25-7 win against Alistair Kennedy, Nigel Robinson, Gary McCloy and Barry Kane.
