Bruce McCandless versus Neil Diamond.

Three of these games have already been played.

Martin McAleenan beat James Clarke 2 up.

Eugene Weir beat Dennis Watt 5 and 4.

Eugene Weir has won this cup more times than anyone else and he looks an odds-on favourite to win it again this year. Trevor Woods may have something to say about that.
