Teams from Railway Union Bowling Club have reached the final of the BLI's Tyler Cup (Junior Pairs) and Mecredy Cup (Junior fours) for the third year in a row.

In the Tyler Cup semi-final, Adam Kells & Derek Kells emerged with a 22 - 20 victory over P Traynor & R Trayler of Greystones Bowling Club, while in the Mecredy Cup semi-final, Ultan Daly, John Mellon, Vivion Daly & Nigel Daly beat W Hyland, B Fairbrother, J C Lee & M Cowley of Crumlin Bowling Club 27 - 14.  Meanwhile, Zach Martin of Railway Union was unfortunate to lose out to J Byrne of Crumlin Bowling club in the semi-final of the BLI's Railway Union Cup (under 25s).  Hard luck Zach!

Derek & Adam now play in the final of the Tyler Cup on Friday 29th July at 6pm, where they hope to retain the cup won for Railway Union last year by Ultan & Nigel while, in turn, Ultan, John, Vivion and Nigel play in the final of the Mecredy Cup on Saturday 30th July at 2pm, where they hope to go one better than last year, when they were beaten in the final by one shot.

And we're not forgetting, of course, that Fiachra Tierney, Adam Kells, Wally Jackson & Derek Kells won the Mecredy Cup for Railway Union in 2009, while Fiachra & Derek were runners up in the Tyler Cup that same year.

Bests of luck in the final lads!!!
