Lisnagarvey’s Neil Mulholland produced a devastating late recovery to snatch the NIBA singles title away from the hands of Nigel Beggs in a dramatic final at Carrickfergus in midweek.

Mulholland, still basking in the glory of his Northern Ireland Commonwealth Games silver medal success, was staring defeat squarely in the face as he trailed the Whitehead man 15-8 at 15 ends
