John Armstrong was the hero as Greenisland Golf Club defeated Westport to claim the AIG All-Ireland Junior Cup title for the first time in their history.

Greenisland won 3-2 at Carton House but the final went right to wire with Armstrong winning ‘one up’ with a decisive putt on the 18th.

Earlier in the day Greenisland’s Andrew Ervine defeated Tony Bree 4 and 3, but Jamie Campbell lost 2 and 1. There was also defeat for David Winning who went down 3 and 2 to Sam Gillivan.

However, Michael Hayes was in fantastic form, easing past Fergus Rothwell 5 and 4 before Armstrong edged the Greenisland men to victory on the last.

The club tweeted: “Amazing achievement from the boys!! First time in our little club’s history!”
