Duncan wins revived Buckna singles tournament

ANDY Duncan was the first winner of the revived Buckna Presbyterian Church singles tournament on Saturday.

The competition used to be a regular event on the tournament calendar but after an absence of more than a decade, it was brought back by an organising committee headed by Robert Black.

Duncan, representing Second Donegore, was a comfortable winner in the final against Uel Gordon (Ballinrees).
